A WIFE was so over-whelmed by the care given to her late husband at a hospice that she vowed to help it with a donation.
Jill Doyle, of Great Sutton, kept her word by arranging for £2301.74 to go to the Hospice of the Good Shepherd at Backford.
The cash was given to the unit's child bereavement service in memory of her husband Peter, who died last year.
Mrs Doyle had asked for the donation from Vauxhall Motors' Trim Shop Children's Charity Fund.
Her husband had formed this committee in 1970 and over the years it made many donations to children's groups in the region.
When he heard about Mrs Doyle's request, David Cawley, the sole remaining officer of the fund, agreed immediately to support the hospice.
Mrs Doyle said: 'There is nothing quite like the hospice. It is such a perfect and happy place where Peter was so well looked after.
'It is not just there for patients but also for their families.
'I am so pleased to help such a worthy cause and my sincere thanks goes to all the hospice staff.'
The child bereavement service, entitled Reflect, is open to children and young people aged between three and 19 who are coping with the death of someone close to them.
It accepts referrals from Ellesmere Port, Chester, rural Cheshire and Deeside. There is no requirement for there to be a connection with the hospice to receive support.
