THE local charity Compaid has received a donation of £2,500 from the Rotary Club of Tonbridge to help its work supporting disabled and frail elderly people.

Compaid, based in Paddock Wood, assists more than 1,800 disabled and vulnerable people every year.

It breaks down the barriers of social, digital and economic exclusion, allowing its clients to achieve their personal goals.

Diane Bradley, Compaid’s Fundraising Manager, said: “We would like to thank the Rotary Club of Tonbridge for the fantastic donation we’ve been given.

“This was awarded to us from the proceeds of their Charity Golf Day and will enable us to continue providing a lifeline to disabled and other vulnerable people to live equal, independent and full lives in and around Tonbridge.

“We are also delighted to now be able to advertise their fantastic work on our Tonbridge bus. Thank you Tonbridge Rotary for your continued support.”

The President of the Rotary Club, Sonia Williams, said: “The members of Tonbridge Rotary Club raise money to help a number of local charities.

“Our next big function will be the town’s Half Marathon on October 7, with funds going to The Bridge Trust and Pepenbury/Aspens charities to help the homeless and people with learning difficulties in order to spread our help among as many people as possible.”
