£2,000 raised for Rosemary Foundation at Elsted


Elsted Village Hall was at full capacity for the wine tasting ‘Call My Bluff’ dinner organised by the Harting & Rogate districts branch of the Chichester Conservative Association.

The highlight of the evening was the presentation of a cheque for £2,000 to nurses of the Rosemary Foundation.

Based in Petersfield, the charity delivers hands-on palliative care to terminally ill patients in their own homes, and support and counselling services for patients and their families. The Foundation supplies a rapid and flexible response to meet individual needs twenty-four hours a day over seven days a week.

“Harting & Rogate districts branch of the Conservatives believe that as well as raising funds to help the work of the constituency and win elections,” said branch chairman Chris Wright, “they should also work to support a deserving local charity.”

Among other beneficiaries the branch has twice previously donated to The Rosemary Foundation.

“The Committee feel that this is one of the most wonderful and worthwhile of our local charities,” added Mr Wright, “and they are delighted this year to have managed to raise a record sum to support them.”
