The cheque was accepted by Jane Bermingham, a representative of Friends of Hospice. Mrs. Bermingham spoke of the difficulty of raising funds during the Covid Pandemic and thanked Mrs. Lusher, a recipient of the Rotary International Paul Harris Fellowship, for the work she has been doing to raise funds over several years.
