A North Lincolnshire charity-run hospice has been given a £652 boost thanks to a group of hockey players from Brigg.
Members of Brigg Hockey Club chose to raise funds for Lindsey Lodge Hospice in memory of Rachel Dawson, whose husband Mark is a former player at the Club, which is based at Brigg Recreation Ground on Wrawby Street.
Stuart Smith, who helped organise the fundraising activities for the Club said: “We’d heard that Rachel received excellent care at Lindsey Lodge, so we wanted to show Mark our support by raising funds for the Hospice.
“We held a raffle at our Club presentation evening, and an inter-club match, and all players made a donation to take part, so a huge thank you to everyone who took part and supported us!”
Lindsey Lodge Fundraising Assistant Daniel Redhead said: “On behalf of everyone at the Hospice, I’d like to say a huge thank you to Brigg Hockey Club for raising such a significant amount of money. Every penny will go towards providing the best possible care for our patients and their families.”
