BOOTHS Supermarket in Ilkley has handed over a cheque to Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice for £1,000.

The supermarket has been supporting the hospice over the past year. They have hosted a Gin & Casino night in their cafe, staff member Victoria Spratt ran the London Marathon and the store donated the profits from the sale of their plastic carrier bags.

Fundraiser Harriet Wood said: “We are so grateful to be able to receive this donation and it also helps us raise great awareness within the Ilkley area where we treat and care for patients either at the hospice or within the comfort of their own homes. Opportunities like this are a great way for us to further promote our name in the area and we thank the staff and customers of Booths for their continued support."

Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice in Oxenhope provides specialist palliative and end of life care every year to hundreds of people. It is there for people aged 18 and over who have been diagnosed with a life-limiting condition be it cancer or a non-cancer.

All care services at Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice are completely free of charge to patients and their loved ones. However, it costs £3.4m to run the hospice and only part of these costs are covered by statutory funds.

Every year the hospice needs to raise over £2.3m in donations to continue to provide its specialist care services. For more information visit
