Nisa Local, Markyate “delighted to support local causes”

Published on 30 December 2016

A Markyate convenience retailer is supporting two local causes this month with donations of £300. The Nisa Local on High Street, Markyate made the donations to Bizzie Bees 3 Pre-School and Markyate and Flamstead Community First Responder Group through Making a Difference Locally, to enable both groups to purchase new equipment.

Sagar Patel, director of the Nisa Local store, commented: “We are delighted to be able to support local causes through Making a Difference Locally and we would like to thank our customers for supporting the initiative in store, enabling us to support great causes such as these in our local community.”

Kim Carney, Manager at Bizzie Bees 3, said of their donation: “We were very pleased to receive the donation from our local Nisa store. The computer used by the children recently broke, and in order to keep up with technology that the children are more familiar with, we decided to use the money to purchase two handheld tablets which the children can use more widely, such as for filming, taking photos, playing educational games and much more.

“We would also like to put some of the money towards equipment for our new secure outdoor play area once this has been completed.”

Markyate and Flamstead Community First Responders volunteer for the East of England Ambulance Service, responding to 999 calls in the local villages.

Alexandra Morris from the Markyate and Flamstead Community First Responders, commented: “We would like to say a huge thank you to Nisa Local Markyate for the donation to our community fund, the donation will be used towards much-needed kit.

“We help members of our community in the most crucial of moments, giving initial treatment whilst they are waiting for the ambulance to arrive. The Responders help with all sorts of emergencies, from breathing difficulties, to diabetic emergencies, children who are poorly or elderly patients who have injured themselves.”

The Nisa Local is actively involved with the local community and has donated around £3,800 to local causes through Making a Difference Locally to date!
