A CHARITY that offers hospice care to children is better off to the tune of £2,000 thanks to Fishponds & Downend Rotary Club.

A CHARITY that offers hospice care to children is better off to the tune of £2,000 thanks to Fishponds & Downend Rotary Club.

Rotarians visited Children's Hospice South West at Charlton Farm, Wraxall, to hand over a cheque following a fundraising drive.

Immediate past president Pete Lawry presented the cheque to CHSW fundraiser Olly Slym.

The money was raised by the club during Pete's year of office, which ended in June 2017. Also in attendance were this year's president Andy Fisher and Rotarian David Powell. CHSW provides hospice care for life-limited children and their families across the South West and is funded almost entirely from voluntary donations.
