Commenting on the this generous addition to the charity's funds, Christine Nisbet commented “A donation like this will enable us to give many hours of nursing care. It's always a joy to know that there are people out there who care as much as we do”. The Handy Croissant Group derives its name from Holiday Inn at Handy Cross, where it meets every Friday morning at 7.15am. Over the past 9 years the Handy Croissant Group has raised over £12,000 for charity.
