All smiles ... the presentation of the cash donation

Delight greeted a cash donation to the Jenny Wren pre-school nursery in Eastbourne, presented by Police Community Support Officer Austin Milson.

The Jenny Wren Nursery School has been providing pre-school education to children in Eastbourne since 1989.

Its mission to provide a warm and secure educational environment has helped inspire many children to achieve their personal and developmental goals.

Teacher/co-manager Dawn Findon said, “All the staff and children at Jenny Wren Nursery School would like to convey their gratitude for the money donated from the Police Property Fund.

“We intend to use the money to purchase talking tubes to encourage communication and listening skills and to enrich the outdoor learning environment. We would also like to purchase a multi-sensory mathematical set to help give the children an understanding of numbers and problem solving.

“We are a small friendly nursery offering a warm, secure and nurturing environment for children aged three and four years old. For further information please email jennywrennursery@yahoo.com or ring 01323 731891.”

The donation comes from the Police Property Act Fund (PPAF), made up of monies received by the police from property confiscated by order of the court and then sold.
