AN ANONYMOUS donation to the Helen & Douglas Hospice shop in High Street has raised £2,000 for the charity.

Shop manager Debbie Sharp has thanked the shopper who dropped in 35 Steiff teddy bears, which caused a stir in the shop and were all sold within a month.

She said: “What a fantastic donation.

“To have someone’s collection that they have collected over so many years is just wonderful.

“It all gets fed back into the Helen & Douglas Hospice which is local.

“The bears were gift-aided to the shop by the owner as well, so we get money back from the taxman.”
