BELPER Stroke Club received a generous boost from three Derbyshire county councillors.

The club receive a cheque for £450 from three county councillors Chris Jackson, Stuart Bradford and Peter Makin.

The presentation was made at Belper Leisure Centre on Tuesday April 3.

The money from the councillors has already been used towards a trip out into the countryside and a meal at the Hardwick Inn, Hardwick, for the club’s 50-plus members.

“Such trips are vital,” said fundraiser Valerie Holland. “As for many members of the group it is the only time they get out.”

The stroke club has 54 members and meets fortnightly, on alternate Tuesdays, at the leisure centre from 2pm to 4pm.
