A charity which supports families going through tough times has been awarded up to £10,000 of matched funding from the Four Acre Trust.

Home-Start Royston, Buntingford and South Cambridgeshire will now see every donation received between now and December 31 doubled - up to the £10,000 limit.

The Four Acre Trust also stipulates that the donation must be a minimum of £500 per donor, must be from a new donor and must be donated by the end of the year.

Home-Start's scheme manager, Sarah Mascall, said: “We are so grateful to again be part of this opportunity for matched funding from the Four Acre Trust.

"We continue to see a surge in demand for family support and this incentive will help us meet this increased demand for our services.”
