Jim, activities co-ordinator at Thornbury Care Centre, Thorney Close, completed his sponsored walk last month, raising a tremendous £231. He would like to thank everyone who supported him during his walk from Thornbury Care Centre to Seaham (Tommy statue) and a very special thank you to the congregation and members of St Mary and St Peter’s Church who donated £50. All the money raised will be spent on equipment (garden equipment and outside furniture) so everyone at the centre can enjoy the sunshine. Formore information, contact Jim on 0191 520 1881.
