A cheque for £43,412 was handed to the committee which runs Love’s Farm House by the charitable body Waste Recycling Environmental (WREN).

The money, awarded by WREN’s community action fund, will be used to buy furniture, kitchen equipment and a PA, lighting and projection system in time for launch of the centre in October.

Ben Pitt, chair of trustees for Love’s Farm House, believes the grant will make a huge difference to the centre’s success.

He said: “We’re delighted with the building that Huntingdonshire District Council has provided for us, and this funding from WREN allows us to fill it with much-needed equipment.
