Two charities which help people in the borough were given a boost of £250 by the Brooklands business community initiative.

Woking and Sam Beare Hospices and the Eikon Charity were presented with cheques at a Business at Brooklands meeting held at St George’s Hill Lawn Tennis Club.

Chris Hickford from the Eikon Charity said: "To receive financial support is vital to ensuring that Eikon’s youth workers are available to the many young people in our community who experience really tough times in their lives, so we’re very grateful to Business at Brooklands."
