High Sheriff Supports the Hopper

Following a successful year of fundraising, Rutland High Sheriff Margaret Miles has presented a number of Rutland charities with small grants to support their work in the community.

Pictured on the right is Margaret at the presentation ceremony with one group of award recipients. Representing the Uppingham Hopper is Uppingham First Vice Chair David Ainslie BEM (centre rear) and Uppingham Neighbourhood Forum Executive Member Margaret Simpson (centre front) who undertakes much of the administration for the bus.

The grant of £400 given to the Hopper is sufficient to fund a set of tyres for the bus. It is very much appreciated.
