NEWS FLASH: Developer’s donation to Focal

16_03_19 Hamberley presentation

Pictured above is a cheque presentation to Focal by Hamberley, developers of the care home on the Banbury Road opposite Twyford Road and facilitated by Adderbury Parish Council.

The developers agreed to contribute a sum to the Parish Council towards local community needs and the Parish  Council asked that £2,000 of the total be allocated to Focal to support our fund raising target.

We are most grateful to the Parish Council for suggesting Focal as a beneficiary and to Hamberley for providing the funds.  We hope to establish a good relationship with the care home when it opens with our visiting library service.

Adderbury Parish Council has been negotiating with the developers of the care home on Banbury Road opposite the Twyford turn for a contribution to the local community.  The result is a donation to the Parish Council of £15,000.  The Parish Council has asked that £2,000 of this be designated as a donation to Friends of the Community of Adderbury Library and the developers have agreed to this.

Focal is extremely grateful to Adderbury Parish Council for facilitating this donation and to the developers for finding the funds to make it.  It will be put to good effect in supporting our library opening hours.
