Caroline Morris, PR, fundraising and community liaison volunteer said: "As a charity, we rely on our fundraising to benefit the residents.

"This money enables us to lay on special events in the home throughout the year and to take the residents out on our mini-bus on regular visits to locations in and around the county.

"Local businesses and the local community have been tremendously supportive of St. Christopher's over the years and we can never say thank enough for their generosity, however without our wonderful team of volunteers, it would just not be possible to run the fundraising events."
