A specialist centre in Barnet for children with sensory impairments has received a boost thanks to fundraising by a housebuilder.

Services at The Hadley Family Centre have benefitted from funding of more than £2,500 which was raised by staff at Fairview New Homes.

The centre, run by the charity Sense, offers services for children and young people who are deafblind, have sensory impairments or complex needs.

Staff at Fairview held cake sales and raffles at the company’s head office in Lancaster Road, Enfield, and at its development site in Colindale to raise the funds.

The money will help to fund the services which The Hadley Family Centre provides for children and families in the local area.

The centre also runs pre-school groups, after school activities and family days, allowing children who are deafblind to interact with their peers and grow in confidence.

Jim Holliday, Sales and Marketing Director for Fairview, said: “The teams at both our head office in Enfield and our development site in Colindale made a tremendous effort to raise funds for Sense.

“Staff were keen to buy cakes and raffle tickets to help to support this excellent local cause.

“The Hadley Family Centre provides vital services for children and families at its facility in Barnet, and we are pleased that we could support its good work.”

Lydia Clark, community fundraising manager for Sense, said: “The Hadley Centre is a fantastic facility, specially designed to support children who are deafblind, have sensory impairments or other complex needs.

“Children who come to the centre can benefit from a wide range of fun and sensory activities to help with their learning and development.

“We are truly grateful that Fairview has chosen to support The Hadley Centre, and the funds the company has raised will make a huge difference.”
