The Inner Wheel Club of Louth has given Louth Hospice an exercise bike worth £200, following a number of fundraising events. President Gwenda Burgin said: “Inner Wheel celebrates 90 years this year, and we were encouraged to buy something with a wheel on it.
“We decided to raise money for the hospice, so Nicky Ingall [General Manager at St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice] asked around and came up with the idea.”
The Inner Wheel Club held events to raise money at their monthly meetings, including raffles and competitions.
Emma Cookson, a physiotherapist at Louth Hospice, said: “It’s really important for people with terminal illness to take part in normal activities, and the exercise bike will add to our exercise facilities appropriately.
“People don’t think of a hospice as a place for exercise, but it’s such an important part of what we do.”
Louth Hospice staff thanked the Inner Wheel Club for their wonderful donation.
