Patients will be able to enjoy improved treatment and conditions thanks to donations from a series of community groups.

Several generous donations have been made to the Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals Trust in recent weeks.

Stamford Cricket Club gave £1,000 to the radiotherapy department at Peterborough City Hospital. The club held a curry and quiz night, which was attended by about 70 people.

Bill Hall, 56, who has played for the club for more than a decade, said: “We were really pleased with how well the event went and we would like to thank everyone who has donated.”

The Friends of Stamford Hospital raised £5,000 for the trust after staging book sales and other fundraising events. Staff at the hospital have had a say in where the money would be best spent and as a result the donation has been split across several departments.

And the children’s waiting area and resus area in the emergency department at Peterborough City Hospital has been revitalised thanks to funding from the For Lucie charity, set up by Jon and Trish Page, of Witham-on-the-Hill.

Jungle and Sahara-themed artwork has been used throughout the department. The entrance to Amazon children’s ward has also been completed using funds raised from the charitable funds.
