Almeley Womens Institute donates £375
Earlier this month Trustee Valerie Fitch was invited to Almeley Womens Institute to receive a cheque for £375.
On behalf of Herefordshrie Carers Support Valerie was also handed a personal cheque for £100 from a member of the WI.
This member had been a registered Carer with Herefordshire Carers Support for her Husband before he passed away. She said she found the KIT magazine important and hopes that we will continue producing it.
We also have to thank another Almeley group, this time the Almeley Wootton Quaker Meeting who very kindly donated £500 to help towards taxi costs for carers to attend our training and events.
This donation is greatly appreciated and will allow us to support carers who otherwise would be unable to attend these events.

£1,931.72 donated to Herefordshire Carers Support by Jill Evans, Ladies Captain of Burghill Valley Golf Club
A big Thank You to Jill Evans who chose Herefordshire Carers Support as her charity during her year as Ladies Captain of Burghill Valley Golf Club. Sharon Pugh went along to the AGM to collect a cheque from Jill for a whopping £1,931.72.
This money will allow us to offer Carers the chance to have breaks from their caring responsibilities including our regular support groups across Herefordshire, day trips, outings and Carers Week 2016.
We are extremely grateful for this generous donation and would also like to thank the lady golfers who supported Jill during the year. A fantastic effort – thank you Jill for thinking of us!
