Peter Davis, Vice President of the Club, handed the money over to Community Fundraiser Nicola King on Wednesday (15 April) at the Princes Risborough charity shop in High Street.

Mr Davis, who lives in Princes Risborough, said: “The charity cared for my wife, Eileen, seven years ago and I have been doing fundraising ever since. The club was delighted to be able to present this sum of money, it was more than we imagined. We will continue to hold collections and look forward to carrying on helping the charity.”

The money raised will help to pay for more than 160 hours of specialist nursing care for patients with cancer and other life-limiting illness.
