SOROPTIMIST International of Milford Haven recently presented a cheque for £200 to the Mount Community Centre in Milford Haven.

The Friends of the Mount was set up this year to try to re-open a long-closed community centre on the estate.

The trustees realised that with the closing of the school and the resource centre there was no longer a point of contact for the community to engage on a regular basis.

There were also no premises that could offer a base for third parties to support the residents of the area or for them simply to get together and interact with each other.

Other than a nominal charge for the hire of the facilities, the Friends have no other income and rely on donations and fundraising activities to survive.

Thanks to the support of local groups and donations the trustees believe they now have enough to carry on for another year with this worthwhile project.

Soroptimists International Milford Haven were glad to support this local initiative and wish all at the centre all the very best for the coming year.
