Earlier this summer, The Singing Allsorts (a choir local to BIRT’s Kerwin Court) held a charity concert. The funds raised were split between Alzheimers Research UK and the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust (BIRT). Kate Hagan who sings with The Allsorts and whose husband, Paul is a service user at Kerwin Court, visited the service this week to present a cheque for £1106.00 to the unit’s Service Manager, Wendy Fletcher.
Kate said today “this is our tiny thank you for putting Paul back together again” and added that she hoped the money raised would be used “to buy things that bring happiness”.
Kerwin Court’s Service Manager, Wendy Fletcher said today “We are grateful for the kind donation from The Singing Allsorts. Paul has a great interest in music, so some of the money will be used to update the service users CD collection as well as replacing some of the existing garden furniture at Kerwin Court.”
