VOLUNTEERS from the Federation of Small Businesses presented the Garden House Hospice, Letchworth GC, with a cheque during their annual Business to Business Dinner at Knebworth Barns.

The £425 donation was raised by FSB members and dinner guests through a fundraising raffle at the event.

Garden House Hospice founder trustee Sheila Ball said: "It was a very pleasant evening. The people are very enthusiastic about what they are doing and asked questions about the hospice.
