The group has closed after ten years in operation but voted unanimously to give its surplus funds to the hospice.

BBMK treasurer Mark Rayner, partner at Milton Keynes accountancy firm Keens Shay Keens, is pictured (left) presenting the cheque for £2,254.34 to Willen Hospice’s corporate partnership fundraiser Tamsin Rawlings and Keens Shay Keens senior partner Paul Davis in his capacity as chair of the hospice trustees.

Tamsin said: “‘We are extremely grateful to BBMK for supporting the Hospice with this donation. 

"The Hospice needs £4.6million a year to be able to provide its specialist, palliative care to the community and with less than 22% of funding from the NHS we rely on the support of organisations like this to ensure we will be always there to care’.

The money will help pay for two syringe drivers which are used both at the Hospice as well as by the Hospice at Home team to help regulate the administering of medication and ensure the comfort of patients.
