The Children First Derby team had a fantastic time celebrating Utilita Energy Hub's First Birthday at the weekend - a lovely event that included face painting, balloon modelling and cakes for all.

As part of the celebrations, and as Utilita Energy Hub’s chosen charity, we were delighted to be presented with a cheque for £750 to help fund our Family Support and Mentoring Service Summer Activity scheme.

The Summer Activity scheme organises a range of activities for our supported children to participate in during the school holidays. We rely on fundraising and donations to help fund this scheme, so we were grateful to receive such a generous donation from our friends at Utilita, helping us support local, vulnerable children during the holidays.

We would like to say a HUGE Thank You to all the team at Utilita Energy Hub who were  keen to offer their support, it is much appreciated.
