A RIBBLE Valley community for adults with a learning disability has taken its regular street collection on line because of coronavirus.

Appeal organiser Chris Wood is asking for digital donations to support Samlesbury's Stanley Grange.

The community of 40 adults faced closure in 2015.

Ms Wood, whose sister Pat lives at the community, said: "Stanley Grange is a small exceptional community providing a homely and fulfilling environment for adults with learning disabilities.

"As we and our residents at Stanley Grange are currently staying home, staying safe and saving lives, supported by our fantastic carers from Future Directions.

"We are unable, at present, to carry out our usual fundraising activities which are a valuable source of income enabling us to provide purposeful activities for our residents and renovate buildings at Stanley Grange.

With this in mind the 'Stanley Grange On Line Street Collection' has been launched.

"To be a collector, all you have to do is share the Go Fund Me page.

"As with all street collections, it does not have to be a large amount. Just £1 would be very much appreciated."

Stanley Grange, in Roach Road in Samlesbury, also provides day care services.

Its residents live independently with control over their daytime routines and the freedom to come and go as they please.
