Rugby Rotary Club has presented Myton Hospice with £4,750 raised through the Tree of Light Appeal.

Club President, Kevin Kiernan, presented the cheque to Myton Hospice Community Fundraiser, Rachel Stevens, at a recent Rotary lunch.

Rugby Rotary has expressed its thanks to the Mayor and Rugby Borough Council for allowing the town tree to be the focal point for the appeal, the Rector of Rugby for the commemorative Tree of Light service in St Andrew’s Church, the ‘tremendous’ support throughout the appeal given by the Advertiser.

A Rugby Rotary spokesperson said: “The biggest thanks of course must, as always, go to all those people in Rugby and beyond who have donated so generously to the appeal which, since it began in 1999, has raised over £72,300.”

Rachel thanked the club for all its unstinting support for the hospice.
