A CHARITY lent lunch in Wormbridge has raised more than £400 for St Michael's Hospice redevelopment appeal.

Around 35 guests enjoyed pre-lunch drinks, followed by a seated lunch at Whitfield – the home of Mr and Mrs Clive.

The appeal was launched in January 2013 to raise funds to significantly upgrade the hospice to ensure its long-term position as a specialist palliative care centre and leader in end of life care in the region.
