Babies and young children in Bucks are to benefit from a donation of more than £30,000 to an Aylesbury charity.

Newman’s Own Foundation, set up by the late actor Paul Newman, has announced it is giving £31,250 to the PACE Centre to support its new programme of post-neonatal intensive care unit development clinics.

The clinics will work with children who are at high risk of a motor disorder, assess their needs and provide therapy.

Amanda Richardson, PACE Chief Executive, said: “The PACE Centre is both delighted and grateful to be selected by Newman’s Own Foundation to receive funds in support of its early intervention services.

“As a result of this grant, we will be able to launch our brand new programme of post-NICU development clinics, helping to ensure that children with a high risk of a motor disorder are assessed and provided therapy at a critical stage in their development.”
