Children in Long Sutton can carry on playing after generous residents helped save their pre-school.
Following an article in the Spalding Guardian, enough items were donated to Cinder Ash Pre-School for their Christmas raffle at the town’s annual fair to raise more than £500.
A local charity, it was feared the pre-school in Cinder Ash park might have to close.
Rebecca Thomas, vice-chairman, said: “The article got people’s attention and we are now a lot more optimistic for the year ahead. We are extending our hours to a breakfast club and after school club for four to 11-year-olds from Long Sutton Primary School.”
