The sensory room on the ground floor near John Lewis will be used by Little Miracles which supports families who have children with disabilities and additional needs.

Taylor Rose TTKW, whose staff have been fundraising for the charity for the last year, is providing £10,000 to help with the costs of setting up and running the sensory room.

The firm will also continue fundraising for Little Miracles with major activities planned for later in the year.

Michelle King, the charity’s chief executive, said the facility “will make a real difference for disabled people in Peterborough.”
