A TEAM of dedicated fundraisers had patient comfort in mind when they donated over £1,000 to their local hospital.

The Northallerton and District Lionesses held various events allowing staff to buy a new aromatherapy couch and oils for the Mowbray Suite at the Friarage Hospital. President Christine Carr said: "Some of our members have been cancer patients at the Friarage so it's a charity close to our hearts.

"We wanted to do something that would benefit patients and bring a little comfort during treatment."
