Just because we’re closing doesn’t mean we can’t help - Stevenage M&S team weighs in with a welcome hospice boost

The Marks & Spencer store in Stevenage’s Queensway may be closing next month, but that hasn’t stopped staff doing their bit for the community.
They’ve raised a total of £900 for the Letchworth-based Garden House Hospice, which provides care and support for patients across Stevenage and North Herts.
Head of fundraising Karen Rabjohn: “This is an amazing amount.
“Along with this money they have also donated tea and coffee, last year and this year, so that we can offer all of our Starlight Walkers a lovely hot drink when they return from their walk.
“We are so grateful for their support.”
