From the total £820,000 raised for Help the Hospices, half will be awarded to its member hospices to help fund the vital care they provide to terminally ill people and their families. The funds received will be split equally between local hospices, which includes Bassetlaw Hospice.

The remaining £410,000 will support Help the Hospices national programme of work.

David Praill, Help the Hospices chief executive, said they are ‘absolutely delighted’ with the amount raised.
