Manager for Torridon Lauren Hayward said: “We wouldn’t have been able to complete the work we needed to increase capacity and offer the full-time hours for children without this financial support from Moray Council and the Scottish Government.
“The funding has allowed us to improve our outdoor space, provide more training for staff and ensure the continuation of high standard.”
