THE Inner Wheel Club of Wellington has presented a cheque for £1,750 to the Children’s Hospice South-West.

The hospice is president Rosemary Wharton’s chosen charity for the year.

The club also donated £750 to Wizzybugs – fun powered wheelchairs designed specifically for young disabled children – and made silk under-arm cushions for breast cancer patients.

Fundraising activities included a sponsored walk, an Italian lunch, a coffee and liqueurs morning, a soup lunch and a town centre collection.
