MEXBOROUGH and Swinton residents helped a widower raise £2,331 for a Doncaster hospice to thank the staff who cared for his sick wife.

George Peace, of Swinton, wanted to thank Doncaster’s St John’s Hospice for the care given to his wife Kate, who died of breast cancer, aged 40, earlier this year.

George worked with Pete Smith and Pete Dodsworth to put on a fund-raising event at Mexborough’s Roman Hotel. They organised a football match, raffle, stalls and barbecue.

Money was also put into the pot by friend Paul Campbell who raised £200 from a sponsored bike ride and George’s employer Morphy Richards who donated £1,000.
