Julie Blundell, fundraiser said: ‘We are truly thankful to Tommy for choosing the charity as his beneficiary.

“He has been a long standing supporter for many, many years and raised enormous funds when organising events such as ‘merry neets’ held with the kind support of the Hired Lad, Penrith,.

“These occasions have brought communities together socialising the traditional, Cumbrian way.

“All funds raised from this unique book will be helping to provide specialised palliative care and comfort within the home for local patients, whilst supporting their families and carers throughout difficult times.”
