Two years of fund raising by the Chamber has provided the funds to buy a much needed hoist for St Clare. The Hospice were asked what piece of equipment would be a greatest help to the staff at the In-patient Unit, and they requested the hoist. Accordingly, we set about raising funds by a variiety of means, including Golf Days, quizzes and shaking buckets at Tottenham Hale.
At a recent visit to Hastingwood, Chairman Steve Cooper presented Sue Fishpool of St Clare with a cheque for £7545 for the purchase of the hoist, which is already being put to use.
The new Chamber Charity is St Elizabeth’s Centre in Much Hadham, and again the target is to buy a useful item of equipment. St Elizabeth’s have chosen a wheelchair bicycle – plans are already in hand for events to raise funds
