Staff at Oakham Veterinary Hospital in Rutland have presented Macmillan Cancer Support with a cheque for £1,500.

Some of the vets, nurses and members of support staff at Oakham Veterinary Hospital with Jo-Anne Wilson (green fleece), Leicestershire and Rutland fund-raising manager for Macmillan Cancer Support.

The team held a variety of fund-raising events throughout 2014.

Practice marketing manager Bex Hoyles said they chose a charity to support each year and everyone felt Macmillan was a worthwhile cause.

“Our staff staff decided they needed to do an event every month to raise money and although we never get together as an entire team, the coffee room seems to be the area where everyone congregates,” she said.

“The decision was made to do small and regular cake sales there and one big coffee morning to raise funds using gazebos in the hospital grounds.”

The team also held jewellery sales, raffles, a bake-off, Christmas jumper day and collections at client events.
