Ely stroke charity Pos+Ability was presented with a cheque for hundreds of pounds this week.

At the charity’s annual general meeting, held in Ely, on Tuesday, representatives were presented with a cheque for £387 by Emily Cousins, of Ely supermarket Waitrose.

Pos+Ability had taken part in the retailer’s monthly green token collection, where shoppers select which charity they want to receive funds with tokens given out at the tills.
