The Market Harborough & The Bowdens Charity has opened a new office in town.

Charity steward Jim Jacobs said: “It marks yet another step in the progress of our ancient charity. It will become the hub of the charity’s activities which provides nearly £500,000 worth of grants and support to our town every year. We hope the it will not only improve our administrative operations but further raise the profile of the charity itself.”

The office’s grand opening on May 6 was attended by past and present trustees, principal contractors who have been involved in the project and others who have supported it through the move from its previous office in St Mary’s Road. Long-time former chairman and founder Marjorie Adcock formerly opened the building, which is at 10 Fairfield Road.
