Care homes in Derbyshire have raised hundreds of pounds for people with life-limiting illnesses by selling tea, coffee and cakes to the public.

Five homes, run by the Hill Care Group, took part in Ashgate Hospicecare’s Care for a Cuppa event and brewed up £511.52.

The participants were Barnfield, Springbank House and Holmewood care home in Chesterfield and the surrounding area, Burton Closes Hall Care Home in Bakewell, and Longmoor Lodge Care in Sandiacre.
