Megan and Marion visited Irthingborough College Street Day Centre this morning to present a cheque for £1440 to cover cost of the window blinds.
The Lady in Pink is Irene Pugh of Irthingborough she said, quote “ Thank you Swivel Club, these new window blinds are very nice and a big improvement and more pleasing to the eyes. The old ones were bright orange and a lot of them were damaged.”
The first photo is the presentation, lady in red is the manager Janice Childs MBE and the man at the back is Barry Matthews from Matthews Blinds. Janice said, quote “ We are so grateful to the Swivel Club for this generous donation, staff and club members are very happy as the old ones were broken and not pleasant to look at.”
This is a letter from John Glenn thanking the Swivel Club Charity for being able to provide a stairlift for his home.
It is always nice to receive thanks where we have been of help.
Air Ambulance Service
We were very pleased to donate £3000.00 to the Air Ambulance Service. They do a fantastic job - all without Government funding, and rely on organisations like "the Swivel Club" to survive.
If you want us to continue to support worthwhile causes, please come along to one of our functions where you will certainly have a great time and enable us to change peoples lives.

Full-time whistle for defib fundraising!
Rushden and Higham Utd Football Club have called full-time on the fundraising for their new defibrillator and have started training club coaches in its use.
After a fantastic fundraiser, with much generous local support, the new defibrillator is now sited inside the grounds of the football club.
To ensure that the equipment is used correctly, the club organised a training session with East Midlands Ambulance Service.
Club Chairman John O’Connor said “We are very proud to provide this emergency facility and extremely grateful to everyone that has supported us.”
Donators were invited to the training session in February to see the equipment in action. The Swivel Club donated £750, Nick Dale and Julie Line £500, The British Legion £100 and Electrician Gary Fletcher fitted the equipment free of charge.
