TAYLOR SWIFT CASH TO BUILD NEW PLAYGROUND
TAYLOR SWIFT is giving back to kids in the Tennessee town where she
went to school - the singer has donated a generous $100,000 (£66,600)
cheque to build a new playground.
Swift handed over the cash to officials in the hope they could use
it to benefit those who have been struggling in the wake of the 2010
floods which swept through Hendersonville.
But her business manager has since suggested the funds will go
toward updating the Kids Kingdom play area, as well as the city's
volleyball courts, according to CMT.com.
Hendersonville spokesman Dave LeMarbre says, "We appreciate Taylor's
donation as well as all the others who have stepped up."
The website reports the old playground is expected to be torn down
later this year (10) and rebuilt in early 2011. (KL/WNWCCMT/KD&LR)
