A FINE total of £450 was raised for children’s charity Action Research after a lunch at the weekend. The event was held at the Binfield Heath home of the charity’s Berkshire chairman Wendy Talfourd-Cook.

The closure threat was revealed in April when the future of the Townlands casualty unit was discussed by the area health authority as a means of saving money.
