A HOSPICE has benefited after being presented with a £2,300 donation from a major accountancy firm.
A cheque for £1,000 from Christmas initiatives was presented to Paul Parrish, director of fundraising at Grove House in St Albans, at KPMG's offices in Fishpool Street. And a further £1,300 was raised by the St Albans KPMG office during the year and has already been handed over.
KPMG's Corrina Bridges said they chose to raise money for Grove House after the whole company decided to support hospices during 2006-8.
They held fundraising initiatives including a raffle in which the prize was a week's holiday, a dress-down day and the sale of Grove House Christmas cards.

Mr Parrish said he was delighted that KPMG had chosen Grove House as their charity and was really impressed at how hard they had worked to raise funds.

The money would go towards setting up a 24-hour, seven-day-a-week home nursing care service and the contributions would make a real difference, he added.
