THREE cheques of £600 each were presented at Holsworthy Social Club on Sunday, March 24.

The three recipients were Holsworthy Town Band, the youth club and the Scouts.

The social club has organised a weekend charity draw for more than 25 years. In that time the social club has donated well over £20,000 to local organisations in the Holsworthy area, and other donations to Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW), Devon Air Ambulance, Headway and Macmillan Cancer Care.

The draw has now been discontinued, but the ‘Treasure Chest’ draw will carry on.

Social Club treasurer Maralyn Bailey said, on behalf of the club, they were delighted to continue supporting local good casues: “We have raised money for local causes for the last 25 years and this last draw brought an end to our regular draws. We are proud of how much money we have raised over the years and that we have been able to support those local groups who deserve a little bit of help.”
