PENSIONERS at a March sheltered housing complex enjoyed a party on Thursday thanks to the generosity of local charity shop Open Chest.

The residents of Shaftesbury Court tucked into a full buffet and had a fun-filled afternoon of entertainment from Tom Kennedy.

Open Chest funded the party and Kathy Dudley was presented with a bouquet of flowers as a thank you.

Phyllis Cusworth, from Shaftesbury Court, said: “Whenever we donate charity items, we always take them to Open Chest. The party was a lovely way to say thanks.”
