Veterans’ donations

Have your say

KIND Wearsiders have banded together gathering money for the armed forces community.

The West End Conservative Club members in Hylton Road have raised £1,000 for ex-service men and women living in the city.

The money has been collected and passed on to the Armed Forces Network, who will distribute the funds locally.

Bill Newell, chairman of the club, says: “On behalf of the West End Conservative Club, we wish all the armed forces and ex service men and women, the best of health. They are always welcome at the club.”

Local resident Zenobia Shearing has also raised £450 by hosting coffee mornings for friends and family.

The money comes just days before the Armed Forces Weekend Celebration, set to be held on Friday, June 27.
