On Monday June 29th members of the Knighton and District Rotary Club met at the Tower House Gallery in Knighton to present cheques to local charities. Club President Sheila Smith said “ We have supported many charities, both local and international, this year and  we are proud today to hand out a further donation to both the Presteigne and Norton Community Support ( PNCS) and toKINDA, the Knighton Initiative for Dementia Awareness.” Chris Keeffe from KINDA added “ This generous donation will be ring fenced for a memory café for dementia sufferers and their families”.
