Frodsham Wheelers Charity Night

Following the successful D2D charity ride ride it was time to handover the money raised to our chosen charity the Frodsham and District Stroke Club.Thanks to the efforts more than £3200 was raised.

The Frodsham Wheelers  achievements were  celebrated at a gala evening organised by the Stroke Club at Frodsham Community Centre and attended by more than 70 members and friends – including the Wheelers. Guests at the gala evening enjoyed a sumptuous buffet, dancing to singer Katie Halliday’s music and a raffle with prizes donated by local businesses.

Club President Jean Johnson said:

We are truly thankful to Frodsham Wheelers for their donation of more than £3,200.With their approval, we plan to purchase disability aids, including a couple of wheel-chairs, a rollator for help with walking, commodes, bath seats and bed levers etc.

At present there is no local provision for such items. We will make them available on short-term loan, free-of-charge to residents of Frodsham and surrounding villages,not only people recovering from a stroke. “We will, of course, accept small contributions towards the cost of maintenance of the items.

Wheelers’ President  Danny Emmett presented the cheque for £3,327.59 to the Stroke Club’s Chairman, Ken Shaw and Jean.

Danny said:

On being elected President of the Wheelers, we chose Frodsham and District Stroke Club as the 2017 recipient of our donation.

I met Jean at a fund-raising function and was blown over byher passion for the work of the club. Being a local charity, it was a natural choice. We received many anonymous contributions, the donors identifying themselves as ‘local resident’. It’s an honour to ride for the Stroke Club.
