Money raised from a college’s end-of-term Christmas lunch has been donated to the My WiSH Charity which supports West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds.
Staff at West Suffolk College raised £1,000 by holding a raffle at their Christmas bash, with many local suppliers and businesses donating prizes.
Vicky Richardson, Staff Association chairman at the college, said: “I would like to say how proud I am that we have been able to raise such a huge amount for My WiSH during our staff Christmas raffle.
“We know this is going to a great cause and will be utilised extremely well by the charity.”
Sally Daniels, appeal manager for My WiSH, said: “West Suffolk College have been wonderful supporters of My WiSH Charity.
