A big thank you -
About 5 years ago, the Admin team at CHIS started a collection of secondhand books and placed them for sale at minimum cost in the reception area, aiming to raise funds for the benefit of the clients.
This has provided an accessible fund , which has been used for a variety of purposes, be it an emergency or to improve facilities, and has included client tea and coffee facilities, pictures on the wall and a very occasional hardship taxis home after a long day for a client.
Over the years the fund has grown beyond all expectations. Recently the Admin team presented the funds from the book stall, now totaling £1,000, to the Friends.
The trustees of the Friends also gained a new member and welcomed Pauline (reception) to the board of trustees, her role will ensure the book stall funds will continue to be for the benefit of all clients.
Admin member Kathryn added 'We are lucky to have regular support for good quality books, so if you have old books in good condition, please contact Kathryn or Pauline'. Tel: 01296 337760.
