The Bedfordshire Magistrates Association were delighted to meet with the Road Victims Trust to present a cheque for £1060 as a result of a year of fundraising activities.
The Road Victims Trust is a Kempston based charity that provides free emotional and practical support to all persons affected by a road death in Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire. Each year the Trust supports in excess of 500 people by way of a face to face counselling service.
The Magistrates Association raised the money with a series of fundraising days, raffles and presentations.
Talking about the award, the Chair of the Magistrates Association, Fiona McDougal said “ We were proud to support a local charity that does so much to support those whose lives have been devastated by a road death”
Clair Bradley, Fundraising manager for the Trust said “ This was a lovely gesture that will enable us to continue to help those who are at their lowest ebb”
