A group of volunteers have handed over a cheque for £1,000 to The Rutland Memorial Hospital.

Volunteers from the trolley service of the Royal Voluntary Service have raised the funds over the past two years, selling essential items and refreshments to patients.

The ‘little shop on wheels’ has been a ‘popular’ service among the patients for over 15 years, a service run completely by volunteers all aged 60 and above. Photo: Alan Walters
