President Eric Checks out the Mountbatten Hospice.

Following a fascinating presentation by Rebecca and Kim of the Countess Mountbatten Hospice to our Friday members gathering at the Point, we agreed a donation to their charity. Aware that this winter could potentially constitute a significant drain on our fundraising resources, we felt we were not able to be as generous as we would have liked. One of the projects planned by CMH, is to improve their car parking facility at their premises in West End, which is very limited at the moment, and could represent a source of stress to visiting relations at a difficult time.

President Eric, Devan and Charles took the actual cheque and our ‘giant’ presentation cheque to hand over to Rebecca Woodhead of Mountbatten Hampshire, only to be upstaged by their even bigger ‘giant’ cheque!
