RESIDENTS at Hovenden House Nursing Home in Fleet can look forward to some summer treats after a donation from a disbanded charity.

Trustees of the former St Raphael Club for physically disabled people in Holbeach have donated £810 to Hovenden House residents.

The money is a share of funds remaining after the club was closed down about three months ago.

Club trustee Alan Larner said: “We disbanded the club because we had so much difficulty in getting people to take up roles on our committee.

“So we decided to take any money left and split it between different charities who are dependent on an extra bit of cash for outings and social activities.”
