A CHARITABLE group in Malmesbury has granted nearly £2,000 to a family requiring urgent financial support.

The Malmesbury League of Friends (MLOF), through a request from a local school, are supporting a family who desperately need to cover the cost of child care for a period of four months.

MLOF chairman Robin Clark said: “We are always happy to respond positively to help those in desperate need.”
