Two of our Labour Councillors are taking part in charity events to help raise money for Home-Start Kettering. Home-Start is a charity that carries out important work helping and assisting families with young children, no matter what life throws at them. This includes helping with post-natal depression, disablility, isolation, stress and other challenges which can lead to crisis or other family issues.
