Charity gets £1250 cheque
9:00am Saturday 28th September 2013 in News
A CHARITY which runs stroke rehabilitation activities has received a £1250 cheque.
Harwich Secret Gardens committee opened more than 20 gardens in the Harwich conservation area to the public in July, to raise money for the Dovercourt branch of the Tendring Specialist Stroke Services.
The committee said this year had been the best year since its launch four years ago.
Tendring Specialist Stroke Services will use the money to purchase equipment and resources to allow Dovercourt attendees to carry out everyday activities.
TSSS Coordinator Rosemary Garrey said: “We were taken aback. We did not expect it to be so much.
“We would like to thank everyone at Harwich Secret Gardens and we have sent them a thank you letter.”
