It’s Trip Trip Hooray thanks to a grant from WDH

Published 5 July 2016

Members of The Five Towns Stroke Group are now enjoying more trips this summer thanks to a grant of over £2,000 from WDH as part of its 10 year anniversary grant initiative.

Victor Istead, Chairman of the Five Towns Stroke Group has arranged a trip each month for members. This summer they will be visiting the seaside at Skegness and Bridlington as well as taking in the gardens at Harlow Carr.

The group helps people who have suffered from strokes or who have mobility and speech issues to meet up and socialise each week. The group meets every Thursday from 2 pm to 4 pm at The Pit Club in Fitzwilliam, where members enjoy games of boccia bowls, curling and bingo, unless of course they are on a trip!

Victor said: “It was a lovely surprise. We are over the moon with the money we received. It has allowed us to fund more trips this summer for the group and means we can hire mobility scooters and wheelchairs for all of those who need them on our days out.”

Becky Gardham, A member of the South East Neighbourhood Panel who helped approve groups for the grants, said: “WDH’s 10th Anniversary Grant Scheme was a great way for groups to do something a bit different. It is really lovely to see groups benefitting from the money they received.”

Applications are now open for this year’s WDH Community Grant Scheme. For more information please visit https://www.wdh.co.uk/OurCommunities/.
