Parents and staff at Helmdon Acorns Pre-School are celebrating news of a cash boost.
The Pre-school has been given a grant of £10,000 from the West Northamptonshire Development Corporation (WNDC).
It currently rents the Reading Room in Helmdon but will soon move to a new building.
The cash will be used to buy a fitted kitchen for the new facility and a piece of outside play equipment.
Liz\ Hart, a parent of a pupil at the pre-school, who has been managing the project, said: ”This really is a fantastic boost to our fundraising efforts.
“Our project costs will be in the region of £173,000 and we are awaiting the outcome of one more application due at the end of July, at which point we should meet our target.”
Plans for the new pre-school were approved in April and work is expected to start by September. Visit www.helmdonacorns.org.uk for more details.
