Staff at Grange Practice in Bradford presented a cheque for £950 to Marie Curie Cancer Care.

The centre, in Bell Dean Road, raised the money through holding raffles and a cake sale, and doctors joined in the fundraising sprit and took over the phone lines.

The practice was keen to raise funds for the Marie Curie Bradford Hospice, which provides expert care for terminally ill patients, as well as support for their loved ones.

Lynne Morrall, assistant practice manager, said: “Working at the practice means that we see so many people who are in need of help from Marie Curie, and we want to support the charity so that people can continue to benefit from the excellent palliative care they provide.”
