Fifty-four youngsters aged between two and four have helped to raise more than £400 for our Doncaster hospice.
The little ones who attend Rossington Early Learners at the Holmescarr Centre, took part in a sponsored obstacle course and ‘splat your teacher’ week-long event, raising £415.
The fund-raising was organised by a team of staff from the Early Learners, including Dawn Wallace, whose grandma Doris died at our St John’s Hospice, Balby.
Dawn said: “My nan spent a week here last November and one of my colleagues received some counselling at the hospice, so we thought we’d raise some money for it.”
Dawn’s sister Marie has also raised and separately handed over a further £2,000 after organising a party and raffle in aid of the hospice.
Lindsey Richards, of our hospice, said: “We are so grateful for both of these donations. They are fantastic amounts of money and every penny will be spent on supporting our patients.”
