HUCKNALL’S Hope Lea Project, which caters for adults with learning disabilities and their families, has received a double cash boost.
The charity has been presented with a donation of £250 by Hucknall Rotary Club and one of £115 by Coun John Wilmott (Lab), deputy leader of Ashfield District Council, from an allowance which councillors receive for worthy causes in their wards.
Stalwart Rotarians Richard White and Terry Moult helped out at Hope Lea’s annual garden party, held at its base on Watnall Road. The event raised the bumper total of about £1,500.
Various stalls and games were organised and the star prize in a raffle was a ride in a limousine, donated by the Co-op Funeral Service.
“The winner decided to donate the prize back to us,” said Hope Lea’s managing director, Judith Storey. “This means that our users will enjoy a trip in the limousine next month,”
