Margaret Whittle, one half of the popular Cottage Crafts enterprise, has handed over a cheque of more than £2,000 to Katharine House Hospice after a year of fundraising.

Mrs Whittle has been a dedicated supporter of the hospice since 1993 when along with her late husband Peter, they opened their home in Tadmarton every year to sell their homemade products.

After Mr Whittle’s death in 2014, Mrs Whittle has continued to work alone in memory of her husband and, in total, their efforts have raised more than £120,000 for the hospice.
