Good work WI!

President of Bridgnorth WI Judith Tranter presented a cheque for the impressive figure of £1,616 to Oak Farm in Ditton Priors earlier in the year. Manager Stewart Toulson and five of the site’s service users were on hand to receive the cheque. Oak Farm provides a safe and supportive working environment for adults with learning disabilities, and the facility has long been a favourite for the enthusiastic fundraising team at the WI.

Judith says, “Oak Farm is very dear to the WI and to the general public, who know Oak Farm and who donated generously at our various fundraising events during 2017, such as the Bridgnorth Carnival, our market stall on the High Street and the Christmas Lights event.

“Stewart thanked us on behalf of Oak Farm and introduced us to Carla, Laura, Rosie, Jenny and Richard, who were over the moon with the amount and will be spending it on the purchase of new tables, chairs and equipment for use in their newly built on-site portacabin.”
