Staff nominated the hospice for some VIP treatment in recognition of the work they do in the community, providing care for people affected by cancer and other life-threatening illnesses, as well as supporting those who are overcoming bereavement. The charity was also awarded £250 worth of B&M vouchers.

Store manager Kelly Rudyard said: “The team from Blythe House Hospice really stood out for us as they go the extra mile for the local community.

"We wanted to give them some VIP treatment as a thank-you for all the hard work they do.”
