Families sent in pictures of their children to celebrate the royal donation.

A West Norfolk children’s charity has received a boost from the Queen’s Privy Purse.

Like many good causes, Little Discovers in North Lynn has struggled to fundraise amid the pandemic.

The undisclosed amount will help the group to carry on providing specialist advice and support to the 24 families it works with.

Little Discoverers team leader Kat Hunter said: “It was a huge honour to have our good work recognised by royalty and it was very exciting to receive the Queen’s letter in the post.”

Based on the Lynnsport site, Little Discoverers provides sessions for parents of pre-school aged children with motor learning development delays or difficulties. 

They provide a unique and holistic form of early education inspired by methods used at the Peto Institute of Conductive Education in Hungary. 

The sessions include music, singing and signing to encourage a child’s motor development. 

One parent said: “We’ve been attending Little Discoverers for two-and-a-half years and the difference it’s made to my little boy is huge. 

“He has learned to walk and been given skills to help him communicate too. Relying on donations, this will make a massive difference to everyone who attends Little Discoverers, not just the children, but the parents and carers as well, who have been given a support network at Little Discoverers.”
