Chapel-en-le-Frith’s Blythe House Hospice has been awarded £3,000 from Lloyds Bank thanks to votes from the public.

The hospice is home to the Living Well service, which provides help, information and support to people affected by cancer or life threatening illnesses, at any stage of their illness.

And the money, from the Lloyds Bank Community Fund 2014, will be used to sponsor the role of a beauty therapist to help support Living Well service clients who experience changes to how they look or feel as a result of their illness or treatment.

The fund was set up to help people across England, Wales, Northern Ireland, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man to have a positive impact at the heart of their community by giving grants to 1,400 local good causes in 350 communities.

Nearly 1.5 million votes were cast for the shortlisted good causes, including Blythe House.
