Sarah Kent from the National Lottery presented a cheque for £120,879 to Cando's Managing Director Kathleen Meredith at their day centre in Irthlingborough Library.

Sarah was so impressed by the work they do for their service users, that she was only happy to support Cando Care with the process.

The tremendous support from the National Lottery Community Fund will not only go towards funding a fourth Carer but will also help with added costs that go with employing a staff member and to do more for their service users in the centre and in the community.
