Staff at an Ely travel agency raised nearly £200 for the Arthur Rank Hospice by hosting a raffle – with a cruise as the main prize.
Premier Travel, based in Forehill, held the fundraising event in aid of the Lisa Barnes Memorial Funds, which raises funds for the hospice.
The travel firm organised a raffle with a cruise as the prize, with all proceeds raised going to the charity.
Ely travel consultant Laura Ashley presented a cheque to local fundraiser Robert Barnes, who lives in Ely, on behalf of Arthur Rank.
Sue Steel, branch manager at Premier Travel’s Ely branch, said: “Robert does a lot of charity work and fundraising for Arthur Rank in memory of his late wife and was delighted with our donation on behalf of the charity.”
Premier Travel’s other branches and staff at its head office pitched in to raise money for the cause.
