Each bag raises an average of £15, equating to £13,395 in funding for the hospice, which is enough to pay for more than 500 hours of specialist nursing care, or 260 sessions of counselling for bereaved families.

Centre manager at Lakeside Village, David Aunins, said: 'We are thrilled that the support of our customers will make a real difference to families in the region.'
