Charities say thanks with presentations
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.
