£500 Community Grant awarded to Ascot People

Finally, Ascot People have been awarded a grant by RBWM to put to good use in the community during this time.  There are some ideas in the pipeline but the top suggestion was to purchase equipment for care homes , that could be used for the residents to communicate with their family and friends, who are unable to visit them at this time.
