Thank you to all those who supported the recent collection for the NSPCC in Axminster. I am pleased to tell you that together we raised £151.54.With help from the people of Axminster, the NSPCC can continue to fund services in the West Country, such as the Young Witness Support Project. Giving evidence in court can be a traumatic experience for young people, particularly when they are victims of abuse. Providing preparation and support helps to reduce trauma, and enable them to be calm and competent witnesses.We would love to hear from anyone interested in helping our small group to protect children in the South West, even if only for a couple of hours every few months. Call (01297) 33798 for further details.Liz TunksSecretary Gamberlake Axminster
