Henchman’s of Swaffham have raised £157 for the Merle Boddy Centre via an auction and charity collection based on international tabletop games day.

The auction included some limited edition, sought-after promotional items, and the shop has also donated some tabletop games to the centre.

The shop is proud to be continuing the supportive relationship it has with the charity. Owner Keith Sandle stated: “We are delighted to continue our support of The Merle Boddy Centre.

“We wanted to offer some tabletop games to the centre, as we know how important they can be in developing new skillsets, having something to focus on, and for confidence, numeracy and logic abilities.

“We hope they are much enjoyed by everyone at the Centre. It’s our pleasure to support the vital work they do in our community.”
