They presented a cheque for £414.14 to the charity, which offers palliative care, therapy and support at the hospice and in the community.

PCSO Chapman-Jones said: “All the prizes were donated by businesses in Chesterfield and we’re so grateful for their support which has helped us to raise funds for a very worthwhile local cause.”
