Hurley Regatta raises £5k for SportsAble

A generous donation of £5,000 was awarded to SportsAble on Thursday.

The money was made up of proceeds raised from the Hurley Regatta which took place in August.

Six members of the Hurley Regatta Committee visited the Braywick Road disabled sports charity to present a cheque.

The regatta, which celebrated its 40th anniversary this year, regularly chooses a charity to raise money for.

Chairman Martin Fry said: "The charity has done superb work over the years in helping people with disabilities to partake in sporting activities at all levels.

"It seemed very appropriate that we should choose them in the year of the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics."

Sports manager Nick Gibbs said he was extremely pleased to receive the donation.
