The money, donated to the hospital’s Macmillan Cancer Care and Treatment Fund, has been raised over this year and last with a number of car boot sales, charity events and performances by The Strollers.
Mrs Glover said: “It has been a real community effort to raise this money with staff at the centre giving up their time at the various events.
