THREE lucky Trowbridge groups have been given £250 each after the Trowbridge Carnival committee had cash to hand on from the event.

Trowbridge Rugby Club, Hope Nature Centre and Trowbridge Lions are all a little bit better off thanks to the generosity of the carnival committee.

Carnival chairman, Maryrose Mantle, said: “They have all supported the town’s carnival for many years so this is a chance for us to give back to three great local causes who help a lot of people in different ways.

“We hope different groups will continue to support the carnival for years to come.”

General manager at Hope Nature Centre, Anya Johnson, and Trowbridge Lions president, Richard Loverock, were thrilled to receive the donation.

“This is very generous of them. It will go towards us getting a bus for educational trips,” said Mrs Johnson.

“We feel lucky to be one of the chosen three,” said Mr Loverock.
