BUSINESSES can support the district’s hospice by receiving personalised Christmas cards.

The cards will feature a video message from patients and staff at St Clare Hospice in Hastingwood, and are being offered to businesses in return for a donation to the charity.

Maria Tillett-Hayes, the hospice's corporate relationships manager, said: “We had great fun filming this in October, with the help of our day therapy patients.

“We celebrated Christmas a little earlier than usual.”

To order the cards, email or call 01279 773748.
