A Wellingborough community centre has been boosted with a donation of £500 from a long-standing supporter.

Glamis Hall on Wellingborough's Queensway estate received the cash boost from Plumbco and Goodey and Howell following their Christmas jumper fundraiser.

Every year they raise funds by contributing for every photo of Christmas jumpers being worn, with the pictures then posted on their Facebook page.

Graham Campbell, a trustee for Glamis Hall For All, told the Northants Telegraph: "It is such a fantastic gesture during these tough times.

"Glamis Hall has been hit hard over the past year so this donation will help tremendously."

Glamis Hall for All consists of a day centre for the over 50s, a large hall with a kitchen and servery and several meeting room that can be hired by organisations and the public.

It is home to a youth club, football club and the Wellingborough base of GLJ Theatre.

While it has been a tough year for Glamis Hall, they teamed up with Wellingborough's Victoria Centre last April to form One Wellingborough to help anyone who was vulnerable, shielding or isolated during the pandemic.
