Veteran Sue Ryder supporters June and Don Wright helped raise more than £500 for the charity’s Thorpe Hall Hospice with a craft fair at Broad Street Methodist Church, Spalding.

The fair was organised by Lisa Thomas, who volunteers in the Spalding Sue Ryder shop. The charity team sold collectables, had a tombola stall and a raffle, while nearly a dozen crafters brought a range of handmade goods.

The Wrights and fellow Sue Ryder supporters have so far this year raised nearly £6,000 for the Peterborough-based hospice, which looks after people from this area.

Fundraising for the hospice continues with a fashion show at Baytree Garden Centre, in Weston, on Wednesday, April 25. The £4 tickets, including drinks and nibbles, are available from Baytree or by calling June on 01775 710606.

In January, the Wrights raised £3,305 at a race night at Spalding Golf Club, another race night organised by club captain John Camm raised £951, and June and three of her friends collected a further £1,151 after spending the past year selling knitted chicks.
