Local charity WISH Appeal have raised £3,520 in a recent event held at Lincolnshire House on Brumby Wood Lane.The WISH (Where Independence Starts at Home) Appeal was launched in April 2005, with the initial objective of the appeal to raise monies to develop existing accommodation into independent living flats.
The charity, following completion of that initiative and many others, now raise monies to put en-suites into Woodlands and Genesis as this is the only bungalow on site that does not have this facility.
In a letter to Lee Turnbull, chief executive of the Scunthorpe United Trust, Ms D.
