Braintree district: Mencap playscheme revived
4:25pm Monday 24th September 2012 in News
Disabled children and teenagers are back at play again after a respite scheme was given a reprieve.
Braintree Mencap was given a £23,039 transitional grant from Essex County Council after originally losing out on funding from the council and NHS Mid Essex.
The charity’s play and activity respite scheme at Charles Leeks House in Coggeshall Road, Braintree, had to close for the summer after running out of cash but is now open on Saturdays and will last until next year’s summer holiday.
