Hospital staff fundraising to rejuvenate two palliative care rooms on their ward have been given a £500 boost.

Team members from Scotter Ward at John Coupland Hospital, Gainsborough, received the cheque from the Rotary Club of Gainsborough following a successful quiz night at the town’s Weston Rooms.

Rotary Club member, Fred Kirkman, said: “The palliative care fund is a cause we have been aware of for some time.

“The idea for a quiz night grew after we had a talk from Donna and Di from the ward. We knew we wanted to do something to help them.

“It’s also a cause close to us with one of our members having previously received care on Scotter Ward.”
