A youngster who has autism and an anxiety disorder has received an iPad and Apple Pencil so she can communicate more effectively through her art.
Rebecca Buckenham, from Huntingdon, received the items from the Huntingdonshire Community Group Covid-19 Community Response Team, which included funding from the Cambridgeshire Community Foundation and a local resident.
Rebecca’s mother Amanda said: “Written communication is very difficult for Rebecca and she can’t always express how she feels in speech but she can through art.”
Huntingdonshire Community Group founder, Cllr Patrick Kadewere said: “Our Covid-19 Community Response Team have been very active on the ground throughout this pandemic.
“From providing food parcels to shielding and vulnerable people, prescription collections, gardening, house moves, shielding welfare checks, activity pack distribution to local children amongst much more.
