A WEEK-LONG cruise for two people is up for grabs in a silent auction which will raise vital funds for St Leonard’s Hospice in York.

The top prize has been given to the hospice by a generous donor.

The cruise on the P&O Azura departs from Southampton on Easter Sunday, April 16.

It will depart from Southampton and call in at La Rochelle in France, Bilbao and La Coruna in Spain and then onto the island of Guernsey before arriving back at Southampton on April 23.

Dawn Clements, of St Leonard’s Hospice, said: “This is a fantastic and unique opportunity to go on a fantastic cruise and support the hospice at the same time.”
