I work in a care home where people who have had strokes and mental illness come. Our residents have become interested in metal detecting “treasure hunting” . We had bought a cheap one with money borrowed off staff but became faulty. We are looking at getting one to help them have a place to go away from the daily stress of there illness of disability. Even if some one could donate a metal detector instead money it would mean the world to at least ten people and make there life a little better.
