Model helpers

A donation of £500 has been welcomed by a charity that provides a mobile physio service to the elderly.

Chapel-en-le-Frith and District Mobile Physiotherapy Service has received the funding boost from the New Mills and District Railway Modellers.

Councillor Linda Leather, a member of the charity’s committee, said with money being so tight a donation of £500 was particularly welcome.

“It is a wonderful donation again from them. They have supported us for a number of years.”

The funds were raised at a very successful railway exhibition organised by the railway modellers earlier in the year.
