Charitable Pocklington Lions Club has donated almost £1,000 to Marie Curie Cancer Care.

The local organisation presented a cheque for £967 to Cheryl Barrett, a fundraising manager for Marie Curie, with the funds coming from the Lions’ Easter Egg Hunt raffle ticket sales.

Graham Gillyon, president of the Lions Club, said: “The donation will help provide the support needed for those in need in the Yorkshire region.

“The Lions Club recognise the hard work of the Marie Curie nurses and appreciate the difference they make.”
