Mr Horner said: “ On behalf of the Friends, may I express our thanks and appreciation for their gift.

“The funds that we raise all help with equipment that the users need, ie transport, beds, chairs, electric fans, and funds help for day trips out with the superb staff.

“Last year we funded a garden makeover to the sum of £12,500 to the rear of the building to help with wheelchair access and artificial lawn including raised flower beds.

“Most of our finance is through small grants etc. If anybody would like to make a donation through whatever means,we would be very grateful.”
