On Friday, 28th April, Karl Jung, chairman of the Two Bridges Care Group, the local voluntary organisation that assists elderly and infirm clients to get to medical and dental appointments, donated cheques to two local charities.
A cheque for £1,000 was presented to Avon Valley Community Matters (AWCM), a charity shop in Fordingbridge High Street that mainly sells clothes. A further £500 cheque was presented to the Fordingbridge Friendship Group.
The photos depict Karl presenting the £1,000 cheque to Diana Roumila and Laura Cowdery, the two shop managers of AWCM, and Olive Baker, Ron Mathitis and Ann Pye of the Fordingbridge Friendship Group.
The Fordingbridge Friendship Group meets in the local pub, The Ship every first and third Tuesday morning. The pub is just a few doors down from the AWCM shop.
The group is for bereaved and single people who can meet up and enjoy a chat over a cup of tea or coffee.
