A BREASTFEEDING clinic which has operated in Andover for 20 years could be forced to close next month due to a lack of funding.

Andover breastfeeding drop-in is battling to keep its doors open after it revealed it did not have the funds to run past April.

The service, based at Andover Maternity Centre at Andover War Memorial Hospital, receives no funding from the NHS and faces intense competition for grants, with all other income coming from fundraising and donations.
