THE Ely Standard's Help Our Hospice Campaign has become an enormous success, and we have already received hundreds of signatures from people appealing to the Government to address the appalling shortfall in funding these much-needed facilities. Each week, we will keep you informed about fund-raising events and how you can get involved in helping our hospice

STAFF at Boots in Ely have generously decided to donate £100 left over from social funds to the Ely Standard's Help Our Hospice campaign.

Every year the Ely store receives money from the Boots company to spend freely on social activities. Store manager Glyn Yates asked his staff for suggestion as to how money left over from the Christmas party should be spent. Maureen Cowley, who has worked in the store for more than 24 years, came up with the idea to donate to the Help our Hospice campaign after she had read about the difficulties the Milton Hospice is experiencing and says everyone else agreed.

Mrs Cowley said: "I think it is a very worthwhile cause and it would be a great idea for us to make a donation to the hospice."

Mr Yates added: "You can't get a much better cause than kids.
