Beechwood Park School in Hertfordshire has received a Community Fundraising Award from Keech Hospice Care to mark exceeding £250,000 in donations to the charity over the last 24 years of association.

Keech Hospice Care provides free, specialist care for adults in Luton and south Bedfordshire, and children from Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Milton Keynes living with a life-limiting illness.

Staff support adults and children to live pain and symptom free, to spend untroubled time with their family and friends, to understand what’s happening to them, to stay out of hospital and to make the most of the time they have.

Over the years, Beechwood has raised funds via a seemingly never ending variety of activities, with the School's Parents' Association being integral to so many of them.

In recognition of the school's fundraising achievement, representatives from the Keech Hospice Care Community Fundraising Team presented Head Ed Balfour and the Beechwood Parents' Association with a trophy and certificate.
