HOOK Morning Townswomen’s Guild has donated hundreds of pounds to aid a charity.

The guild has donated £560 to CLIC Sargent, which helps children and young people with cancer.

The money will go to Jean’s House in Southampton, the charity’s recently-opened ‘Home from Home’ for young cancer patients and their families.

Chair of Hook Morning Townswomen’s Guild, Rita Caesar, said: “We are delighted to make a donation towards Jean’s House in Southampton.

“The vast majority of children and young people with cancer from Hampshire are treated in Southampton. Staying in Jean’s House allows the whole family to be together whilst their child is undergoing cancer treatment.”

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Engagement Manager for Hampshire, Liz Blunt, said: “With our lease ending for our Home from Home in Southampton this year, we had the opportunity to open a new bigger and better home. Without our supporters, this wouldn’t have been possible.

“I would like to thank Maureen Herdman-Grant for nominating that the ladies support us this year and all of the members of the Hook Morning Townswomen’s Guild for their generous donation raised through coffee mornings, raffles, produce and craft sales.”
