BAYDON volunteer Penny Stephens is urging people to support Prospect Hospice by becoming a box collector.

The scheme has been running for more than 30 years and raises around £90,000 each year but the charity desperately needs to recruit new team members.

Mrs Stephens, 67, who has been a box collector for 10 years, said: “Each year we usually raise about £500 between the 20 houses that are part of the scheme in the village.”

Anyone who would like to volunteer can call (01793) 816163 or email giftytawiah@prospect-hospice. net
