ON BEHALF of Age UK Horsham District, I am writing to express our thanks to the people of Horsham who contributed to our street collection in the town on Saturday July 9.
Donations on the day totalled £724.66 and will be used delivering support and services for older people living in the 205 square miles of Horsham district. We incurred no expenses in connection with the collection.
We are an independent, local charity and although we receive grants, we also have to rely on the fundraising efforts of our members, splendid staff, volunteers 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 www.ageukhorshamdistrict.org.uk
Thank you also to the staff and volunteers for giving up their time to ensure we had sufficient collectors and produced this very good result. We are grateful also to the manager and staff of the Age UK shop in the Carfax who made us very welcome on the day.
Trustee, Age UK Horsham District
