St Barnabas Hospice have reached the end of their year long £1 in the Pot appeal and have collected an amazing total of £18,500.

Through a range of different fundraising activities, which saw members of the public doing everything from putting on musical performances, cutting hair continuously in a 24-hour barberthon and treking the Sahara desert, the impressive figure has been raised to enable the Grantham hospice to continue to provide care.

In what has become an annual charity expedition, the Sahara trek alone gathered £12,150 in sponsorship.

St Barnabas Hospice’s Corporate Fundraiser Tina Dingley said: “The support of the local community has been fantastic and we want to thank everyone for what they have done for us.”
