On behalf of Age UK Horsham District, I am writing to express our thanks, through your newspaper, to shoppers who contributed to our street collection in Horsham town on Saturday May 26.
Donations on the day, totalling £508.06, will be used delivering support and services for older people living in the 205 square miles of Horsham District.
Thanks to wonderful volunteers, no expenses were incurred in connection with the collection.
We are an independent, local charity and although we receive some grants, we have to rely on our own fundraising efforts as well as donations and legacies.
If any of your readers would like to know more about donating money or their time and skills, they could telephone 01403 260560 or view our website at www.ageukhorshamdistrict.org.uk.
The manager and staff of the Age UK shop in the Carfax made us very welcome on the day and we are grateful for their assistance.
Trustee, Age UK Horsham District, Dukes Square, Denne Road, Horsham
