Generous ladies from a local women’s group handed over £130 to charity recently.

The Kiveton and District Women’s Club presented the cheque to David Steele from deafblind charity Sense.

The group, who meet at Kiveton Colliery Cricket Club twice a month, raised the money by holding a nearly new sale in October.

“We normally have two fundraising events during the year,” said group secretary Mary Havard.

“We decide between us which charity we want to support. People give their suggestions and we take a vote, and this time our members wanted to support Sense.”

Founded in 1955, Sense is the leading national charity that supports and campaigns for children and adults who are deafblind.

It provides expert advice and information as well as specialist services to the estimated 356,000 deafblind people in the UK, their families, carers and the professionals who work with them.

The charity provides on-going support for deafblind people and families, ranging from day services where people can learn new skills to Sense-run houses where people are supported to live as independently as possible. To find out more visit www.sense.org.uk.
