A LEVERINGTON Common furniture store has donated a rise and recliner chair to Roddons Housing Assocation.

The donation on Monday by Darrell Else was part of a national plan by chair manufacturer Joynson Holland to donate 100 chairs, via local retailers around the UK, to worthwhile causes.

Roddons have asked their residents to nominate who they think should receive the chair so it can be allocated in the fairest way.

The winner of the chair was drawn at the presentation by chairman Darrell Else. The lucky resident was Mrs Joyce Judd (87), from Whittlesey.

Mr Else said: “We know how essential these chairs can be to an individual and are excited to be donating our chair to a very worthwhile cause.”

Darrell Else are delighted to reveal that they have agreed to become a stockist of Joynson Holland and with it, also support Macmillan.

A partnership has been set up between Joynson Holland and Macmillan Cancer Care, who will donate £10 from the sale of every chair to the charity.

Joynson Holland, who were established in 1892, specialise in high quality powered chairs that feature a quality motor and mechanism system. The chairs feature a simplistic rise and recline system which reclines to a flat bed position to offer maximum comfort while sleeping, and tip forward to make sitting down and getting up as easy as possible.
