A Hemel Hempstead company has presented a £1,500-plus cheque to a Tring-based charity.

Staff at Eckoh in Corner Hall raised the money by giving up Christmas cards and voted to give the cash to Iain Rennie Hospice at Home.

Speech recognition expert Eckoh is also signed up to be a volunteer call centre for Comic Relief next month.

Eckoh’s chief executive Nik Philpot said: “The Iain Rennie Grove House Hospice charity has a personal connection to Eckoh having helped some of our own staff and family members through some very difficult times, so it wasn’t a surprise when the staff chose it as the charity they wanted to support.

“We are extremely pleased to be able to present this cheque to such a deserving local charity that is doing such important work.”

The Tring hospice supports families affected by life-limiting illness so patients can stay at home for as long as possible. Public support funds more than 85 per cent of the care provided.
