The campaign to build a children's hospice has received a £2,000 boost.
The charity Alexander Devine's Children's Hospice Service, started by Windsor couple John and Fiona Devine in memory of their son, plans to build the hospice on a site just outside Maidenhead.
At last week's meeting of the Thames Valley number one Unicorn Club, president Chris Neale presented a cheque for £2,000 to community fundraiser for the charity Suzie Knowles.
Suzie said: "The money will be used to buy a new laptop and various pieces of medical equipment including a much needed syringe driver for delivering medication."
'Thames Valley number one' is one of five fellowship Unicorn clubs. It meets at the Bird in Hand in Knowl Hill on the second and fourth Monday of the month.
Funds for the hospice were raised by members of the club during the year at a number of events, including a quiz night and fireworks spectacular.
