Editor Nicole Garnon said: “We wanted to do something fun to raise money for the appeal. This is the first of many fundraising activities we will be doing.

“Several staff took part and we had some great prizes in the raffle. We look forward to raising more money.

“We are recruiting people from all over the region to take part in this special appeal that will help the St David’s Hospice Care.”
