Generous donation will help support disabled on respite

Have your say

A CHARITY has received a generous donation from a community group.

Revitalise, the charity which runs the Netley Waterside House respite holiday centre in Southampton, is now £1,000 better off, thanks to a donation from the Friends of Emsworth Community Health (FECH).

FECH, who are supporters of Revitalise, visited the charity’s Emsworth Shop to present the cheque, which will go towards supporting the disabled people and carers from the region who visit Netley Waterside House for respite breaks.

Staff at the Emsworth shop gave FECH members Irene Kent and Reg Harnett a warm welcome and thanked them personally for their support of Revitalise’s vital work in the region.

Julie O’Neil, Emsworth shop manager, said: ‘It was wonderful to welcome our friends at FECH to be here with us.

‘It was really important that we invite them along to our Emsworth Shop to give them the recognition and thanks they deserve for their efforts in supporting our charity.

‘The donation given by FECH is extremely generous and will go a long way towards supporting disabled people and carers from the region and beyond. Thank you.’

Revitalise is a national charity providing respite holidays for disabled people and carers at Netley Waterside House and two other accessible centres in Chigwell in Essex and Southport.
