North Walsham Play received a major boost to its fundraising efforts following a pre-Christmas gift from George Pegg. A cheque was handed over to Matthew Smith MBE, totaling £608.10, which was raised at the Christmas Makers Market organized by George and his family.
Presenting the cheque, George Pegg was very pleased with the figure raised from the event which took place on Saturday 7th December 2019 at North Walsham Community Centre. He added “I really do hope the money raised will help with the funds needed for the Skate park”.
George, who has autism, has always wanted to run his own catering business, so the maker markets allow George to organise, manage and run his hugely successful pop-up Café. Originally the idea of a close family friend, Helen Richardson, George’s Cafes are very well known within and around North Walsham for providing delicious homemade cakes, bakes and treats.
Receiving the cheque, Matthew Smith wished to thank all who helped organise the event along with all those that came and gave their support. He added “this is a great boost to our fundraising efforts to help bring about a new state of the art skate park within the town”
