For many months our hospice nurses have needed a 4 x 4 vehicle, as over the winter months they have struggled to provide support to patients and their families, using their own cars. Thanks to the generous donation from the Torrington Town and Lands Charity of £3,000 we have been able to purchase a 4 x 4 vehicle. This vehicle will now allow our Clinical Nurse Specialists and Hospice to Home nurses to be able to visit patients and their families, in rural hard to reach places and during icy weather. In the last year we have made 4,821 visits to patient homes.

The Town & Lands Charity have received the following update:- “It has been a busy few months at the Tarka Valley Railway as with the assistance of grants such as the generous one from Great Torrington Town & Lands Charity, we have been able to purchase and lay track towards the first bridge towards Bideford, we have also installed a level crossing to ensure safe access is maintained for all. We are now working on restoring Ivy Cottage as well as raising funds for a "King Point" which will lead to the sidings”.

The Trustees of the Great Torrington Town & Lands Charity awarded a grant to the Great Torrington Heritage Museum.

The Town & Lands Charity have received the following update:- “Attached are photos of museum frontage with figures of King Charles and Oliver Cromwell which was part of the grant we were generously given, we are very pleased with them, hopefully they will increase the visitors to the museum. The digitisation of the cassette tapes is ongoing”.

A thank you email received from Torridgeside Youth Football Club:

‘Thank you so much to the Trustees in agreeing to help us with a financial donation to obtain this ... it’s been a long season without a working mower and three pitches to maintain but it has finally arrived!’
