Char­i­ties say thanks with pre­sen­ta­tions

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your -

GOOD work in the com­mu­nity was recog­nised with two dif­fer­ent pre­sen­ta­tions in the city.

Women seek­ing refuge were given a help­ing hand when the Nige­rian Com­mu­nity in Peter­bor­ough do­nated toi­letries to the city’s Women’s Aid Cen­tre.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion pre­sented the cen­tre with 50 toi­letry cases packed with items such as tooth­paste and tooth­brushes, deodor­ant, creams, tis­sues and wipes.

Money was raised for the items through do­na­tions in the com­mu­nity, and mem­bers de­cided to sup­port Women’s Aid.

Mem­ber Sanusi Shaiyen said: “We like to help where we can in the com­mu­nity.

“We’ve been go­ing about two years and have a lot more char­ity work in the pipe­line.”

Peter­bor­ough and Dis­trict Deaf Chil­dren’s So­ci­ety has pre­sented an en­graved tankard to its out­go­ing pres­i­dent John Cheetham.

So­ci­ety sec­re­tary Andy Palmer per­formed the pre­sen­ta­tion, which also cel­e­brated Mr Cheetham’s 25 years of tire­less ser­vice with the so­ci­ety.

The pre­sen­ta­tion took place dur­ing the so­ci­ety’s fam­ily fun day at Jack Hunt School, Peter­bor­ough, where Mr Cheetham was also host­ing a stall for the Lions.

He will re­main on the so­ci­ety com­mit­tee to con­tinue with ex­ist­ing projects.
