Longmores Charitable Foundation awards CHIPS with a grant

Longmores Charitable Foundation awards CHIPS with a grant

The Longmores Charitable Foundation has awarded CHIPS (Children’s Integrated Playschemes) with a grant of £3,167 to help fund their summer playschemes.

Longmores Solicitors set up their charitable foundation in 2016 to help worthy local causes; particularly smaller and less well-known causes that are often in greater need of financial support than many of the established national charities.  The trustees selected CHIPS to receive a grant because they share a goal to help young people in the local area – without donations, CHIPS would not be able to provide playschemes to local children. 

The CHIPS playschemes offer play and social opportunities for children with additional needs aged three to 19 living in East Hertfordshire and the borough of Broxbourne.  Brothers and sisters are strongly encouraged to join and play together, regardless of their needs.  Simple play is vital in any child’s development.  As well as being fun, play is a key component of healthy living which enables good physical, emotional, mental and social development.

On Thursday 9th August, Longmores presented a cheque to CHIPS during a playscheme at Hertford St Andrew primary school on Calton Avenue.  Young children and siblings were enjoying a day of indoor play, art, a bouncy castle and an obstacle course in the gym which they had built themselves.  Helen Smith, CHIPS Co-ordinator, who oversees the playschemes said “We think it is important to offer a variety of activities for children of all ages.  We like the younger children to enjoy playing and have a mixture of activities set up each day so they can pick what they want to do”.

Rachael Spalton, a Trustee of the Longmores Charitable Foundation, who presented the cheque said, “It is a pleasure to see the grant being used, to meet the children and see them all having fun together.  The Foundation is delighted to be able to provide support for the wide range of activities offered by CHIPS this summer.”
