IT is a donation that will help a Hampshire charity move a step closer to creating a programme to stop drug addiction.

The Barker-Mill foundation has donated £5,000 to the Waterfall Trust charity, based in Southampton.

The charity was set up in 2012, and aims to support women who are trying to overcome addiction, with a focus on those who have become trapped in prostitution.

The charity has a goal of raising £148,000 to start the programme, which includes buying a building which will be used as a rehabilitation centre for a year.

To get involved in the Waterfall Trust, or to find out how to make a donation, call Peter Kenyon on 07518 032 245.
