Watford Rotary Club donates CD player to Lancaster Court care home
Members of Watford Rotary Club have delighted residents of Watford care home Lancaster Court by donating a CD player.
The donation follows a plea by a resident’s wife, who approached the club last month.
Associates from the club had taken to Harlequin shopping centre to host an Action Day, in the hope of raising awareness of Rotary and attracting new recruits to the organisation.
Peter Clark, member, said: "One of the people who stopped to talk to us was Mary Moreby. She had a long conversation with Rotary District Governor Debbie Hodge who was assisting us at the Action Day.
"Mary’s husband is a resident in a local care home - Lancaster Court in Leavesden High Road.
"She was aware that the care home needed a CD player for the residents’ lounge and wondered if the Rotary Club could help.
"Club President Malcolm Jones put the proposal to the society at the following meeting and it was immediately agreed that the club should buy a CD player for the home."
On Wednesday, August 15, Malcolm Jones, accompanied by Debbie Hodge, presented the CD player to Lancaster Court deputy manager Jyoti Seekun.
Mrs Moreby was also present and said that residents would be delighted with the new addition as they loved to hear old songs, and had never had a CD player in the lounge before.
