It is a parting gift from the ExtraCare Charitable Trust following the sale of The Lady Forester Community Nursing Home in the town.

Mark Laws, chairman of the Much Wenlock Forester Trust, said: "This is a most generous gesture by ExtraCare and one which is very much appreciated by the people of Much Wenlock. The prime aim of the charity will be to relieve financial hardship, sickness and poor health amongst elderly people in the area."

Martin Shreeve, trustee for The ExtraCare Charitable Trust, said: "The charity wished to recognise the town's ongoing support for the home and its residents over a number of years."

Philip Dunne MP, who helped the campaign to prevent closure of the nursing home last year, welcomed today's donation.

He said: "This is a very good day for the people of Much Wenlock."
