Double charity delight for Sidmouth Rotary clubs
PUBLISHED: 12:38 02 March 2012
GENEROUS donations to two Sidmouth organisations have boosted a pair of charities.
A ‘Christmas Tree of Goodwill’ run by the Rotary Clubs of Sidmouth and the Sid Valley saw £1,600 shared between Children’s Hospice South West and the Bramble Ward at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital.
Respective club presidents, David Burgoyne and Mike Wale, thanked all those who contributed for their generosity.
Young hospital patients in the Bramble Ward will benefit from £800 to buy diagnostic magnifying lamps, to assist nurses in examining and treating wounds, and a saturation monitor to measure levels of oxygen in the blood and pulse rates.
A cheque for £800 was also presented to Bev Thomas, the Sidmouth co-ordinator for Children’s Hospice South West.
The money will go towards their work providing care and support for ill children and their families across the region.
