The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your News -

A lo­cal com­pany has raised more than £7,000 for Sue Ry­der’s Thorpe Hall Hospice in Long thorpe, af­ter a suc­cess­ful year of fundrais­ing.

Thorpe Hall was se­lected as Pro­duce World’ s char­ity of the year for 2015/16 and has ben­e­fit­ted not only from the dona­tions from Pro­duce World, but also from time do­nated by mem­bers of staff and their fam­i­lies to help to con­vert a piece of derelict land back into a Kitchen Gar­den.

Dona­tions came from fundrais­ing events in­clud­ing cake sales and cy­cle rides.

Nilesh Pa­tel from Thorpe Hall said: “We are very grate­ful for the sup­port Pro­duce World has given us which has en­abled us to not only de­velop our Kitchen Gar­den, but also pro­vide hun­dreds of hours of care for our pa­tients.”
