Have your say

UNION members have donated cash to a Wearside hospice.

Unite’s Sunderland City Council branch handed over £200 to St Benedict’s Hospice in Ryhope.

Branch secretary John Kelly said: “Our members who work within the sport and leisure area of Sunderland City Council have made an extremely generous and thoughtful gesture in deciding to have a collection and donating the money to the hospice.

“The hospice provides an essential service to the people of Sunderland and surrounding districts.

“I am sure that all of those making a donation know someone who has received the benefits from such a valued service.”

Kevin Johnston, Unite Shop Steward for Sunderland City Council Sport and Leisure staff, handed over the £200 collection to the hospice.
