MEMBERS of the Rotary Club of Crediton Boniface presented cheques for £1,200 each to Age Concern Crediton and District and Mid Devon Mobility, at the Lady Mills Centre in Crediton.

Jo Rice, CEO of Age Concern Crediton and District, said: “It’s essential that we keep the community club running and this donation is a welcome help towards energy costs, providing meals, staff and heating to keep it all going.”

Age Concern supports the elderly within the community and is helping to ensure they are living life to the full with the support of Crediton’s independent charity for older people.

Sarah Holmes, transport co-ordinator of Mid Devon Mobility said: “We are delighted to receive the cheque.

“The money will be spent on Mid Devon Mobility in Crediton.”

The aim of Mid Devon Mobility is to make a difference to local people offering a variety of accessible transport solutions, connecting communities helping to increase the independence, mobility and peace of mind of older and disabled people and combating the problems of loneliness and isolation.

Liz Ledsham of Crediton Boniface Rotary said: “We raised the money last year and decided to give it to two charities in Crediton.

“We would like to thank the people from the Crediton area for supporting us.”
