Saffron Walden-based national children’s disability charity in the running to scoop top award
A Saffron-Walden based national charity has been shortlisted by Children and Young People Now Magazine to receive one of its prestigious titles.
Fledglings are in the running to scoop the Children and Young People’s Charity Award.
The titles have become a great source of recognition to organisations that go above and beyond to help others, and campaign for change.
The presentation will take place in November at the Hurlingham Club, London.
Fledglings aims to improve the lives of disabled children and give relief to their families and carers by providing advice, sourcing and supplying products and services to meet individual needs. Last year the charity received over 8,000 specific requests for help and information.
