Joe said: “We chose the hospice because it’s a local charity and my wife and I have known several people who have received care and treatment here. It’s a great local appeal, which supports local people. I want to thank everyone who supported our bingo event and for the additional donations we received too.”

Chris Smith, St John’s Hospice Appeal Fund-raiser, said: “We all want to thank Joe and Jan for this amazing amount of money which will help our patients. Last year the couple raised over £400 during the year for our appeal and we appreciate all of the hard work and effort they put into fundraising.”
