CONCERTS by Bognor Regis Handbell Ringers have helped stroke survivors in the town.
The tuneful members of the group presented a £1,200 cheque to the Bognor Regis Stroke Support Group at the end of a fundraising year for the organisation.
The donation was received by support group secretary Valerie Evans, pictured above with the handbell ringers.
The group is going to use the money for a summer outing for members, a cruise on the Chichester Canal and a visit to the Bognor Regis pantomime in December.
Handbell Ringers’ secretary Pauline Allsopp said: “We are absolutely delighted to be able to provide these funds to support the excellent work of this voluntary local organisation.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who supported us throughout 2016 and the members of the group for their ongoing commitment and enthusiasm which has enabled us to give 25 performances during the year at venues ranging from nursing homes to playing carols at Chichester Cathedral.”
This year will see the handbell ringers raise funds for the Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance’s round-the-clock lifesaving work.
