A CHILDREN'S charity has been given a second cash boost in the space of a month.
Noah's Ark, which covers Potters Bar, has now received £500 from a recruitment agency after winning a grant from the Royal Bank of Scotland earlier in January.
The children's hospice, which looks after youngsters with life-limiting illness, covers south Herts and north London.
This latest money comes from Anne Jagger Recruitment, based in Finchley - part of the charity's catchment area.
Gill Dodge, chief executive of Noah's Ark, said: "We're immensely grateful for this donation.
"As a young charity, we need all the help we can get to provide practical and specialist care for our life-limited children and their families.
"Our aim is very much to add life to the child's years, not simply add years to their life and to help as many of the estimated 350 life-limited children across north London as possible."
Employees at the recruitment agency raised the cash over the Christmas period through contributions from staff, temps and money donated by the business.
Anne Jagger, who handed the cheque over earlier this month, said: "We wanted to do something positive to help those in real need and contribute to the community."
She said she hoped this would be the first of many contributions from the company during 2008.
