Rugby Rotary presented the town's Myton Hospice with cheques for more than £6,000, following a successful Tree of Light Appeal and club raffle.

The cheque was presented to Myton Hospice staff nurse Helen Siddaway on Monday, March 22.

During the event, Rugby Rotary club president Keith Ward presented two cheques one from the Tree of Light Appeal for £5,338 and the other from the club’s Christmas Hamper Raffle for £1,060.

A Rotary spokesperson said: "Rugby Rotary is immensely privileged to be able to give this continuing service to the community by the annual Tree of Light Appeal which would not be possible without the support of the Rugby Advertiser with its coverage of the project, the Rugby mayor and Borough Council for allowing the town tree to be the focal point for the appeal.

"The biggest thanks of course must, as always, go to all those people in Rugby and beyond who this year have donated so generously in the wake of the pandemic."
