The Huntingdon Ladies Circle has raised £10,593.11 to pay for items to support hospital staff.

Members asked people to buy items on an Amazon wish list which the circle set up for NHS Staff.

The group, together with chairman Amy Lightfoot Lines, now want to say a huge thank you to everyone who has donated items to the Amazon wish list for Hinchingbrooke and Peterborough City hospitals.

The group started collecting donations for the hospitals when they learnt that NHS staff were in vital need of hand creams, hygiene products and food and drink items.

During the Covid 19 pandemic, hospital staff are working long shifts and they say these items really help.
