North Dorset MP Bob Walter promised to help Home-Start North Dorset secure more funding when he recently paid a visit to our Sturminster Newton office.
Mr Walter met members of the team to find out about the way it helps support local families. He talked to the charity’s chairman Jenny Kretz, scheme organiser Jamie Keast and volunteer Paul Pateman.
Mr Walter said:
‘It was great to meet the Home-Start team and find out more about the work they do in North Dorset. I was very impressed by both the breadth of issues these volunteers help to tackle and the level of commitment to the local families they each support. Already at capacity, the team is helping a large number of people whose difficulties in life are often compounded by rural isolation. A successful Big Lottery bid would allow the organisation to continue its core work and I will be doing whatever I can to assist them.’
