Sally Millington, fundraising manager, said: “These really are magnificent amounts and we are so grateful to everyone who has made a donation.

“The money raised through the collections means we will be able to reach more people when they need us.”

She added: “I would also like to thank all the volunteers who have so generously donated their time to help raise such wonderful amounts. We really couldn’t do it without them.”
