FRIMLEY Children's Centre has been given £450 collected in the wishing well at Notcutts Garden Centre in Bagshot.

Children's centre nurse Eirwen Coe said: "I would like to thank the garden centre and their customers for their continuing support for the Frimley Children's Centre.

"The money will be used to improve the facilities for our patients, enabling them to receive care in a child-friendly environment."

Frimley Children's Centre provides services for paediatric outpatients up to 18 years old from Frimley Park Hospital and surrounding GP practices.

The centre provides child and family consultants, child development assessments and treatment for children with special needs, physiotherapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy - services which help children continue to develop in their physical and mental health after leaving hospital.

The centre is appealing for funds for a cardiac echo machine, which will be able to detect heart defects in children.

The money donated from the garden centre will be used to help the centre achieve its target of £65,000, which it aims to raise over the next few years.

Notcutts manager Mark Vaughan said: "The Frimley Children's Centre is a great cause to support and we are proud to be able to help them grow and develop.

"The work that they do really does make a difference in people's lives and we are happy to be able to lend them a helping hand so they can achieve their goals."
