Sam Morris, fundraising manager, said: ‘The amount raised is a brilliant result for the ladies, who put in the hard work to organise this fantastic day, which is enjoyed by everyone who attends. It is also of great benefit to the patients at the hospice, who receive care thanks to the generosity of everyone involved.’
