A charity supporter has employed crafty skills to present a warming donation for St Catherine’s Hospice, after it provided care for her mother.

The hospice is now the proud owner of a giant patchwork quilt, the result of many hours work by hospice supporter Margaret Ward, which is now up for grabs in a raffle draw.

Fundraising team leader Carolyn Jackson said: “Saint Catherine’s Hospice would like to express a huge thank you to Mrs Ward for the time and effort spent in making this beautiful quilt.

“There is now a raffle running at Saint Catherine’s Hospice where people can buy tickets for their chance to win this fabulous quilt.

“The raffle will be drawn at the Ladies Lunch which is taking place on October 8 at the Crown Spa on the Esplanade.

“Saint Catherine’s Hospice provides in and out-patient care, neurology support, bereavement support and day care for patients across a 1,600 square mile area, including Scarborough, Filey, Bridlington, Driffield, Hunmanby, Whitby, and Ryedale.

“Each year the hospice treats around 1,500 people from that area, the largest geographical area of any hospice in Britain other than the highlands of Scotland.”
