MORE than £600 has been handed over to The Comet's charity of the year, the Garden House Hospice in Letchworth GC, thanks to the efforts of runners in a community race.

Nearly 200 people of all ages took part in The Comet-sponsored Stevenage Community Fun Run on May Day, raising more than £1,000 in total.

Of this amount, £609 has been given the hospice, with the rest being split between event organisers Stevenage Community Trust and the Rotary Clubs of Stevenage.

Jenny Lupton, general manager of the Garden House Hospice, said: "We really appreciate Stevenage Community Trust and the Rotary Clubs' efforts. On the day it was so nice to see so many people joining in and taking part, especially whole families enjoying a day out.
