Parents at special needs playgroup Playskill in Hemel appeal for people to vote online to secure essential funding

And with your help, they could win a community award of £25,000.

Playskill is a Hemel charity that supports children with special physical needs. They not only run free playgroups for pre-school children with physical disabilities or developmental delay, but also provide support for parents and the whole family.

Groups are held weekly at Woodfield School in Malmes Croft and the Lemarie Centre on St Albans Road in Watford. The sessions use play as a tool.

Each term Playskill helps 32 children requiring intensive support and their families. But with a growing waiting list and more referrals, there is an urgent need for an additional group, which the award would enable Playskill to set up.
