The new room at the Michael Palin Centre in Pine Road which specialises in treating children and young people who stammer will help sufferers develop their communication skills.

ARSC Chairman, Bryan Dutton was delighted with the award and said: “With the Help a Capital Child grant, for the first time we can fully equip a group therapy Suite so that the children have everything they need to work with our specialists to improve their confidence and ability to manage their stammer. Thank you, Capital, for your generous support.
