THE Open Chest charity shop in March has donated £500 to Wisbech Stroke Club after its cause was put forward by a club member and regular donater.

Brian Arling suggested that the shop donates funds to the club, which has members from across Fenland and highlights the need for support for stroke survivors.

The money will be used to finance running expenses, transport costs for disabled members, outings and social activities.
