Waterlooville

Basepoint Waterlooville are proud to be supporting local charity, SMILE Support & Care, with a donation of £10,000 to help equip their new Short Break Centre in Waterlooville.

SMILE already provide support and care to over 500 children and young adults with disabilities and will soon be offering short breaks at their newly built centre on Hemlock Road in Waterlooville. The purpose built centre will offer a safe environment with round the clock professional support and comfortable, specially equipped accommodation in peaceful surroundings.
Basepoint Waterlooville’s donation of £10,000 will be used to provide the garden with outdoor play equipment.
Theresa Elliott, Head of Fundraising said: "Basepoint supported us back in 2012 with a balloon release on the site where the centre now stands, to help get the building work underway. We were thrilled to welcome them back today, to see the centre and present us with a cheque for £10,000. This contribution will fund the play equipment in the garden which will be specially adapted for severely disabled children."
