A women’s meeting group in Selsdon has raised nearly £1,000 in donations for local charities over the summer.
Selsdon Afternoon Townswomen’s Guild presented a cheque for £500 to Lee Bennett, the director of services for the Garwood Foundation, as a donation to be used by Rutherford School.
The school, on Melville Avenue, is a specialist independent school for pupils with profound and multiple learning disabilities that provides inclusive education to learners whose very special needs are compounded by a high degree of dependency.
The Garwood Foundation is raising money for a building where 19 to 25-year-olds can be supported, and the money donated will be put towards a hydrotherapy pool as part of their Rutherford Life Skills Centre.
The Guild also raised more than £400 at a MacMillan Coffee Morning, thanks to the generosity of their members and the cakes that they baked and sold for the cancer charity.
