Hospice Fundraiser Andy Furneaux, said, "This is a tremendous amount of money to raise and we are bowled over by the generosity of the pub and its customers who have continued to support their local hospice for more than 11 years.  

"It costs £21,000 a day to cover the cost of providing our extensive range of specialist end of life care and support services and their donations are making a huge difference to patients and families at the most difficult time in their lives."
