A HOSPICE has received a cheque for nearly £1,500 from a prison which has been holding fundraising events.
Representatives from Sue Ryder Care at Thorpe Hall Hospice in Peterborough were invited to Stocken Prison, in Stocken Hall Road, Stretton, on Friday last week for the presentation.
Sue Ryder corporate fundraiser Alison Toomey was delighted with the donation.
She said: “This is a fantastic help for us and will go towards the ongoing costs of care that we provide.”
On the same day, the prison held a fete-style event to raise even more money for the charity.
It is not yet known how much was raised, as funds are still being calculated. The prison is supporting the hospice as its charity of the year.
