Stroke Club receives the ChOPP

Posted by Val Swain • Leave a comment

On 24 September the Club welcomed two members of ChOPP (Chichester Old People’s Partnership) – Gemma, Community Fundraiser and Lizzy, Community Engagement Worker.  Since its formation two years ago, ChOPP has coordinated the work of various voluntary organisations in the Chichester District and provides a “one-stop” point of contact.  Gemma Kingsman has helped the Club in their fundraising, in particular securing a Grassroots Grant from the Sussex Community Foundation.  The Club is  most grateful for their support during a difficult economic period and looks forward to discussing ways in which the Club’s services can be strengthened and membership increased.  Thank you for your valued support.

Grassroots Grant

What a wonderful surprise when Mary Carruthers, Grants Manager, Sussex Community Foundation telephoned to say that the Club had been awarded a further £2,000.  We would like to thank the Foundation for their generosity.   The funding will enable the Club to continue and to offer group exercises and individual hand massage, in particular, which is so beneficial to our members.
