At the recent Donkey Derby fund-raising event held at Margate Bowling Club, South Coast Hospice received a wheelchair donated for use in the Kingfisher Inpatient Unit.
President of Margate Bowling Club, Derrick McKechnie, handed the wheelchair to Dave Boyd, the chairman of South Coast Hospice, with BT King sitting in it and the organiser of the donation, John Louch, looking on.
“South Coast Hospice is very grateful for the club’s hospitality and use of their venue, and the wheelchair donation was the cherry on the cake following a tasty and wonderful dinner prepared and cooked by Lenie Rennie and served by the Margate Bowling Club ladies,” said King, South Coast Hospice’s fund-raising co-ordinator.
“As a long-standing supporter of South Coast Hospice, our gratitude cannot be expressed in words except for ‘thanks for your ongoing support’ for the work we do in our community. May your club grow from strength to strength for what you do in the community as well.”
