Staff and customers at the Yorkshire Bank in Clitheroe supported East Lancashire Hospice over the festive season by buying cards and calendars featuring paintings of East Lancashire scenes by local artist John Chapman.

Their generosity raised a whopping £508 towards helping the hospice care for local people who are coping with a life-limiting illness.

Its fund-raising manager, Sharon Crymble, said: “We are indebted to Mr Chapman for each year providing us with new and inspiring paintings of East Lancashire to use both in our our hospice Christmas cards and also for the very popular calendar, and also to Yorkshire Bank for taking the time to offer these to their customers to raise money for the hospice.

“It costs approximately £3m. each year to provide a special way of caring to our patients at a time when they need it and also to provide support to their families at what can be a very difficult time.

“We would like to thank everyone involved that has helped to raise the money that goes a long way to making a huge difference.”
