A Cambridgeshire charity has received a generous donation to help make a difference to individuals and their families.
The Arthur Rank Hospice Charity were rewarded £1,000 by Redrow Homes South Midlands, who are behind the King’s Meadow housing development in Ely.
The funds will go towards the charity’s ‘hospice at home’ service, which enables patients to spend their last days in the comfort of their own home.
Emma Bray, corporate fundraiser at Arthur Rank Hospice, said: “The support of the community is essential in allowing us to continue to care for as many patients as possible in their own homes, where this is their wish.
“Donations like Redrow’s make a very real difference to individuals and their families when they need us most.”
