Rennie Grove Hospice Care has congratulated a Tring pub for its incredible fundraising efforts in a series of events.

Brainy teams of quizzers put their knowledge to the test at The King’s Arms in Tring between January and April and raised £2,000 to split between four local charities, with £500 being donated to the local hospice at home care provider.

Meanwhile, a homegrown band donated all of the proceeds from one of their concerts at the same pub.

Old Country Union raised more than £5,000 from the event, thought up by band member Frank Walsh after he lost his father to cancer.

Claire Redrup from the charity’s community fundraising team said: “In one evening this event raised enough to fund 260 hours of nursing care, helping hundreds of patients diagnosed with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses.”

Rennie Grove Hospice Care was – formerly known as Iain Rennie Grove House Hospice Care – is the new name for the charity formed in 2011 incorporating Tring’s Iain Rennie Hospice at Home and Grove House in St Albans.

• Rennie Grove provides specialist responsive 24/7 Hospice at Home care for adults and children in Bucks and Herts, plus a range of additional services such as day hospice and nurse clinics at Grove House in St Albans.
