THE Rowans Hospice has received a cash boost of £7,000 from fundraisers.
A group of fundraisers joined forces to sell cakes, pound the streets for collections and hold fun family events in aid of the hospice.
And they did it all in memory of their colleague Danny McMullan who received treatment there when he was suffering from lung cancer, before he died in February last year.
The money will be split between the hospice and its Dorothy’s Dream Appeal which pays for hospice care at people’s homes.
Stephen Mills, who worked with Danny at Grant Thornton in Southampton, said: ‘Danny was a wonderful man who devoted so much of his time to helping others.
‘He died at home as he wished but the experience would have been so much more peaceful and comfortable if the 24-hour care at home team had been in place
‘To know that the money we have raised will help this at-home support become a reality for others really is an honour.’
