Munchkins baby, toddler and carers club in Mareham-Le-Fen near Boston receives funding from Platform Housing Association

A baby, toddler and carers club will continue to serve the community after receiving extra funding from a housing association.

Munchkins, a club which is held at Mareham-Le-Fen Community Centre near Boston, applied for Platform Housing Group’s community chest so they can carry on providing their services for another year.

After the application was assessed, the club was granted extra money meaning it can keep running every Wednesday from 9am - 11am.

Victoria Fleet, who runs the club, said: “We are delighted to have been awarded this grant from Platform Housing Group.

“We are situated in a remote community in Lincolnshire; our club not only benefits the babies and toddlers in our area but also their carers, parents and grandparents who can feel isolated and alone.”

Offering play, snacks and company, Munchkins was determined to be a worthy cause by Platform’s customers.

“Our group offers an opportunity for them to all come together and feel more connected,” Victoria added.

Platform’s Community Chest allows customers, charities, clubs and other not-for-profit organisations to apply if their work or project directly benefits its clients.

Marion Duffy, chief operations officer at Platform Housing Group said: “Bringing people together adds real value to local communities, particularly in remote areas like Mareham-Le-Fen.

“We are delighted to support this group in bringing people of all ages together.”
