Staff at an estate agents paid special personal thanks to Sidmouth Hospiscare for the support it gave one of their colleagues last year.

Julie Hignett said the charity was ‘fantastic’ when her husband was diagnosed with terminal cancer, before which she had not appreciated the service it provides to local people.

The staff and directors at Harrison-Lavers and Potbury’s and Hillsdon Management donated a hamper that will be divided between Sidmouth Hospiscare’s staff and nurses.

They also decided to donate money to the charity instead of sending Christmas cards to one-another.

Sidmouth Hospiscare chief executive Gill Ryall thanked them for the lovely gesture and said she was pleased the charity was able to provide Julie and her husband with the care and support needed.
