An anonymous donation of £2,000 has been made to a group of campaigners fighting to keep a popular day centre open.

A woman from Cambridge chose to show her support financially after seeing coverage of the Save Glamis Hall action group in it’s bid to stop the centre in Wellingborough closing.

Graham Campbell from the action group said: “We’ve had an anonymous donation of £ 2,000 from a lady in Cambridge.

“She has seen the coverage and wanted to help out.

“What a really nice thought from someone who doesn’t live local.”

The cash boost comes in the week that Wellingborough Council’s resources committee recommended that Glamis Hall should close.

Their recommendation will now be considered by the full council on October 7.

But despite the committee’s decision on Tuesday, campaigners were buoyed after meeting with the council the following morning to talk about their proposals to work with the council to keep the hall open and continue to provide some form of day care.

A public meeting is being held by the action group at 7pm on Thursday, September 25, at Glamis Hall in Goldsmith Road.

The group wants to discuss ways of taking the campaign forward and to update people on the latest information they’ve received.

Posters are going up to advertise the meeting and campaigners will be dropping flyers through people’s doors in the area this weekend.
