CHIPS receive a £10,000.00 grant!

CHIPS  is delighted to receive a grant of £10,000 from Hertfordshire Community Foundation to fund the Christmas Playschemes 2020.The CHIPS Trustees are extremely grateful for this support as the charity’s income from fundraising and donations has been severely affected by the current pandemic. Without this support the Trustees would have been forced to make the very difficult decision to cancel the playschemes this year .Play is such an important part of all children’s development, especially   during a crisis ,play has a significant therapeutic role , helping children recover a sense of normality and joy . The playscheme sessions will  also give parents some respite time  to catch their breath and have a break from their caring responsibilities at a very busy time of year.’ #FundedByHCF
