A Rushden car dealership has helped raise thousands of pounds for Cransley Hospice.

Croyland Car Megastore has again supported the Kettering hospice’s annual Midsummer Ball, which took place at Harrowden Hall on Friday, June 13.

This is the twelfth year Croyland Car Megastore has supported the ball.

Di Patrick, fundraising manager at Cransley Hospice, said the continued support and the money raised has benefited patients.

The annual ball has been among the most lucrative fundraisers for Cransley Hospice, raising almost £40,000 to date. The hospice relies heavily on the charitable support of the community to sustain the quality of care it provides.

Mark Swindells, general manager at Croyland Car Megastore, said: “We are proud to once again pledge our support for the ball. It is vitally important to help support the hospice and it is just one of the ways Croyland Car Megastore is supporting good causes in the local community.”

Mrs Patrick, who was last week awarded an MBE in the Queen’s birthday honours list, added: “All at Cransley Hospice are delighted that Croyland Car Megastore of Rushden has chosen to support the annual Midsummer Ball once again this year.

“On behalf of all the patients at Cransley Hospice, I would like to say a heartfelt thanks to Croyland Car Megastore for their continued support.

“Their support has meant a substantial amount of money has been raised over the years, which will have directly benefited patient comfort and care. For that, we are most grateful. The relationship has been a long-standing and enduring one over 12 years.”

Cransley needs £2,400 every day in charitable donations to continue to provide the care it gives.
