A Letchworth supermarket has presented a cheque for more than £6,000 to Garden House Hospice Care following a year of fundraising.

The hospice in Gillison Close was voted local charity partner by staff and customers at the town’s Sainsbury’s store last July.

A jam-packed year of fundraising has included bag-packing, in-store collections and more – with the store also helping to promote hospice fundraising events and activities.

Garden House Hospice Care chief executive Sue Plummer and development manager Katy Terry accepted a cheque for £6,369.29 from store deputy manager Gemma Murrell and Val Hillyer.

Katy said: “We can’t thank the team and customers at Sainsbury’s enough for all their support over the last year.
