A lot of help from Tesco

 Every little helps – as we’ve been finding out, thanks to the generosity of a nearby supermarket giant.

Woodfield Plantation’s Tesco Extra has teamed up with the hospice to supply fresh flowers every couple of weeks for the next 12 months to provide some summertime colour for our patients and staff to enjoy.

The flowers will be accompanied by a box of fruit for our team to tuck into as they carry out their valuable work at the hospice and in the Doncaster community.

And to mark next month’s anniversary of the opening of St John’s in 1992, Tesco are gifting a fabulous luxury hamper which will be raffled off at our 30th birthday party in the hospice grounds on Saturday 3 September.

The flowers, fruit and hamper are being donated though the store’s community fund which supports local good causes.

Maureen Harwood, from our fundraising team, said: “Thank you so much Tesco for such a fabulous gesture, we really appreciate it.”
