St Barnabas Hospice hosted Probus 88 for a charity donation presentation party. President, Robert Hardwick, presented cheques for £150 each to St Barnabas Hospice, St Wulfram’s Church Spire Repair Fund and Grantham Talking Newspaper for the Blind.
Tina Dingley, representing the hospice thanked Probus 88 for its continued support. Chairman of Grantham Talking Newspaper, Sue Taylor, said the service they provide is entirely free and is run by unpaid volunteers and relies on donations, bequests and fund-raising activities for its income.
Mr Hardwick said that Probus 88 is a luncheon club for retired, professional and businessmen and not activley involved in charity fund-raising work.
However, members will recommend a donation to a local charity when funds allow.
