Charity action group donate 24,000
Published 27/01/14



THE charity action group at Phyllis Court Club in Henley has donated 24,000 to five charities.

The Sue Ryder hospice in Nettlebed received 16,000 and the remaining 8,000 was split equally between the Kingwood Trust for people with autism, the MS Society’s therapy centre in Henley, Club SC in Sonning Common and Henley Youth Centre.

The group raised the money with a series of events during last year, including three fairs, which raised 10,571. A raffle at jeweller Jacobs of Reading’s 65th anniversary celebrations raised 1,074. The company also donated a diamond necklace to Sue Ryder, which will be auctioned at one of its fund-raising dinners.

In the previous year, the group raised 24,000 for the Helen and Douglas House children’s hospice charity. Group chairwoman Diana Pearman said: “Never did we envisage that we would achieve such a total again.

“The committee were delighted at the amount we raised and that the members of Phyllis Court Club were so generous with their donations.”
