A CHILDREN'S charity has missed out on a chance to win a £250,000 home but still has its sites on building a second holiday house for seriously ill youngsters.

Sebastian's Action Trust was one of three southern area finalists in building company Persimmon Homes competition for a new house, but today it missed out on going through to the national final as the regional winner was announced.

Stepping Stones Down Syndrome Support Group which works around Berkshire, North Hampshire and Surrey was declared the regional winner and it is now up to the public to chose which of 24 charities around the country will win the house.

But Sebastian's Action Trust, which is based in Bagshot and supports seriously ill children and their families around the area, has long term plans to build a second holiday home in Berkshire to offer a similar service to The Bluebells - its purpose-built respite house in Hampshire.

See this week's Bracknell News and Ascot News for more information.
