A Corby store has raised more than £200 for Lakelands Hospice.

Johnny Kidd, manager of the McColls shop in Greenhill Rise, nominated the Corby hospice as the store’s chosen charity for the McColls Make a Difference Locally (MADL) scheme.

With money donated following the sale of items from several ranges sold in store, they raised a total of £279.14.

Community fundraiser for the hospice Marina Rae said: “For every item sold from their heritage range and selected main brands a penny was donated to Lakelands – a truly fantastic amount.

“Thank you Johnny and the Greenhill Rise team, you are Lakelands legends.”

The hospice in Butland Road is an independent charity committed to delivering the best possible practice and development of specialist palliative care for people with cancer, heart failure and other life-limiting illnesses.

It is entirely funded by voluntary donations and support from the community.
