A CHEQUE for £500 has been handed over to a deserving Ribble Valley charity.
Ian Lloyd, of Mortimers Estate Agents and president of Clitheroe Chamber of Trade, raised the money with the help of his fellow Chamber members during the presidential ball, which was held earlier this month at the Stirk House Hotel, Gisburn.
He decided to raise money for The Sanctuary of Healing, in Langho, because of the worthwhile work that they do on a daily basis.
He commented: “The Sanctuary of Healing aims to help achieve the best possible quality of life for all those who come to the centre.
“The therapies they offer particularly attract people with arthritis, ME, MS, and Parkinson’s Disease.
“I feel the sanctuary is worthy of support because of the work the staff does. It’s a fairly new business founded by local man Tony Clarkson and is a registered charity too.”
