Age Concern Deepings are on ‘cloud nine’ after a presentation was made to boost their minibus replacement appeal by the owner of the popular gift shop of that name.

Alison Ireland, who is a staunch supporter of Age Concern, presented a cheque for £230 to representatives of the charity, bringing the total of her donations in the last year to over £600.

The donation included a pot of change brought in by a regular customer, Marilyn, and the 5p carrier bag charge, which Cloudnine matched.

Alison said: “This is an example of ‘loving local’ working full circle.

“With local residents supporting a local business, that then supports a local charity helping local residents.”

Three members of Age Concern Deepings’ committee were on hand to accept the cheque.

A spokesman for Age Concerns Deepings said: “We are incredibly grateful to Alison for her work on our behalf. This donation will help swell our appeal funds.”
