The Filton Lodge of Fortitude donation was doubled to £600 by the GMCA. The charity’s Chair, Jane Holzgrawe, accompanied by Vice Chair, Pat Gardiner, attended the lodge’s Festive Board to be wined and dined and presented with the cheque by Fortitude WM, Bob Hazlett.
The GMCA’s tercentenary match-funding initiative has certainly been welcomed by Avon Talking Magazine Association, a charity that provides a free monthly audio magazine and news articles to its partially-sighted and blind members. The results of their work reach across the Province and beyond. The magazine is manned entirely by volunteers and is based in Whitehall in Bristol.
