HOLBEACH Hospital League of Friends have been handed a cheque for £450.

Margaret Elston, Muriel Whitmore and Joyce Waterfall raised the money by running tombola stands at several local events.

The three friends are experienced fund raisers and decided this year to focus their efforts on the hospital league of friends.

Eileen Ambrose, the charity’s chairman, said: “We’re very grateful for what the ladies have done, we’re also very grateful for the support of the public.

“It make’s a big difference because there are lots of things that the hospital wouldn’t be able to buy without us.”

Money from the league goes towards buying equipment such as wheelchairs, beds and home comforts.
