JK Rowling saves charity home from closure

The Evening Times is reporting today that The Braendam House, a charity home allowing poor families to vacation, was saved by JK Rowling's Volant Charitable Trust, among others. It had been nearing closure after running out of money:

The size of the donation has not been revealed.

As well as the cheque from Volant, other trusts have contributed to a rescue package for Braen dam House, including the Cattanach Trust, Robertson Trust, Endrick Trust, Mugdock Children's Trust, and the Balmore Coach House Trust.

Cath Morrison, chief executive of the Lilias Graham Trust, said the new money would keep the charity going until at least next March.

She said: “It is fantastic news. It was like TV's The Secret Millionaire.”
