Staff at Mellor Connections have raised £950 for East Lancashire Hospice by holding numerous fundraising events.

The residents’ group in Mellor have hosted a rock and roll night, Burns’ night, harvest supper and many more events over the last six months to raise the impressive sum.

John Hymas, from Mellor Connections, said: “We chose East Lancashire Hospice because someone we knew was a patient of Hospice at Home and so many people in Mellor are touched by the charity.”
