Big hearted shoppers have voted for Doncaster’s Hospice to win a £200 donation from a local superstore.

St John’s Hospice, Balby, was one of three good causes that shoppers at Asda Superstore, Doncaster, could vote for. St John’s Hospice topped the votes, while the other charities both received a £50 donation from the store.

The hospice is currently going through a £1.8 million revamp but has a £500,000 cash shortfall.

Carolyn Halls, of ASDA, said: “ASDA wants to be in the heart of the community and support local charities. Anyone wanting to nominate a charity can do so in our store. It gives me great pleasure to hand over £200 to our local hospice, which helps families at their time of need.”

Alison Constantine, of the hospice, said: “I want to thank not only ASDA for their fantastic donation, but also the shoppers who voted for us.”
