A Doncaster male voice choir has hit the high notes to raise £300 for the town’s hospice appeal.

Members of Tickhill and District Male Voice Choir, who raised the money in just two hours by singing inside Tesco Extra at Balby, have donated the funds to the St John’s Hospice Development Appeal.

The hospice is currently undergoing a £1.8 million transformation but there is a funding gap of £500,000. The revamp will see the hospice, on Weston Road, Balby, completely renovated to provide a modern, welcoming, comforting and supportive environment for Doncaster patients.

Chris Buley, of the choir, said: “We’ve adopted the hospice as our charity. I had two friends who came to the hospice and I was impressed with the care they received. “

Another choir member also had a family member who received care at the hospice.

Mel Hewitt, the Hospice Community Fundraiser, said: “The hospice appreciates this donation and I want to thank all of the choir members for giving up their time to raise us this money. Every penny we receive goes into our development fund to enhance the hospice for our patients.”

The hospice is run by Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust (RDaSH).
