Think Children's Wendy Walton-Towle (centre) was thrilled to receive a cheque for £4,000 today from Tim Dowling and Cleo Lacey of the Star Trust. Generous donations like these mean we can provide early help for more local children who are experiencing emotional wellbeing issues.

We were thrilled when Newark and District Round Table dropped in to Think Children’s offices to donate a new printer that we were desperately in need of. Donations like this make a big difference to us and allow us to reach more children in the local area who are struggling to cope with emotional issues that may be due to circumstances such as parental separation, bullying, bereavement, loss, low self-esteem and domestic violence, among many others. Thank you! #newarkroundtable
