Glossop-based charity Crossroads Derbyshire have opened their new playroom for children living at their Harmony Project refuge. 

The Rainbow Room, featuring a rainbow, hill scene and a caterpillar, will be available to children forced to flee their homes from the risk of domestic abuse.

It’s been funded by two charities – the Sylvia Adams Charitable Trust and the Sylvia Waddilove Foundation.

Pam Whittle, Services Manager at Crossroads Derbyshire (formerly High Peak Women’s Aid), said: “It was a real pleasure to see the children enjoy the new playroom, and see the culmination of months of hard work by our staff, volunteers and donors.

“I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who contributed to this project, and to all the residents at the Harmony Project for their patience while the work was carried out.”
