Yvonne Aust, ICE West Midlands Chair, chose Shropshire charity, Severn Hospice as her preferred charity at this year’s Awards Dinner.

Her fiancée’s father and his family had been supported by the charity during his battle with cancer and Yvonne wanted to recognise the work they do in supporting people who are facing very difficult times.

Lucy Ruff, Severn Hospice Fundraising Manager said: “We are extremely grateful for this support and hope we can adequately express how incredibly important your contribution is to us. We will of course make careful use of your donation, spending it wisely to help fun care and emotional support to local patients in the future.

We hope you are justly proud of what you are helping us to achieve through your support of our work.”

Yvonne said: “Over 300 people attended our annual awards dinner this year. It was a fantastic evening - enjoyed by all, and I am very grateful to all those who thought of those less fortunate and gave so generously.”
