Bumper burger sales raised hundreds of pounds in support of hospice charity Dorothy House.

Leonard Walker master butchers in Market Cross, Malmesbury, has given a cheque for £650 to Dorothy House Hospice after selling hundreds of burgers at its fundraising stall during the late night Christmas shopping event in December.

Assistant manager Robert Goulding, from Leonard Walker, said: “It was the most successful one we have done so it’s getting more popular.

“We decided to raise money for Dorothy House because the hospice in Winsley is where a lot of Malmesbury people go to when they are terminally ill with cancer.

“My dad died of cancer as well.”

Anne Porteus, manager of the Dorothy House Hospice shop in Market Cross, Malmesbury, accepted the cheque from the butchers last week.

“I didn’t know they were raising money for Dorothy House until the night they were doing it,” she said.

“It was only when I went across there and saw they were raising money for us that I knew.”
