CHILDREN’S Hospice South West has received a staggering £20,000 in donations after being named Bristol Airport’s charity of the year in 2012.
The charity, which runs Charlton Farm in Wraxall and provides care and support to seriously ill children and their families, was nominated by airport staff and as a result, numerous fundraising activities were held throughout the year.
As part of the partnership, CHSW volunteers were given access to the terminal building so they could collect cash donations from passengers.
One particularly dedicated couple, Denise and Gary Gooding, volunteered to collect in the terminal every Friday throughout 2012.
CHSW corporate partnerships fundraiser Kate Fisher said: “The money raised will enable us to raise a smile and make the most of short and precious lives.

“We would also like to say a huge thank you to all our amazing volunteers who gave up their time to collect at the airport. Without people like Denise and Gary we would not have been able to make the most of this partnership.”
