A SUPPORT group has raised more than £3,564 for charity.

The Saint Catherine’s Kirkbymoorside Support Group raised donations over the last year, through cake stalls, coffee mornings, a winter walk, a sponsored swim and street collections.

“They are a lovely group of ladies who have been raising money for many years,” said Nicky Grunwell, the Ryedale fundraiser for Saint Catherine’s.

“They do an amazing job and this year’s total shows exactly that.

“I would like to thank them on behalf of everyone here at Saint Catherine’s, including our patients and loved ones.

“The funds raised will go a long way to supporting patient care.”

Saint Catherine’s provides a number of services in Ryedale, such as community nurse specialists, care homes support, bereavement support and an out-of-hours telephone service.

Patients can also access clinics, wellbeing services and in-patient care at the main hospice site, in Scarborough.
