BRITAin’s Got Talent stars 2 Grand were on hand to accept a cheque on behalf of Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.

Best friends Heather Parkinson, 49, and Deborah Read, 50, from Cantley, raised more than £2,000 for the centre.

They invited Rossington granddad and granddaughter, John Neill and Sallie Lax, to the presentation at The Beechers Brook pub in Ascot Avenue.

Heather and Deborah held a host of fundraising events for the charity, including a car boot, Easter fairs and a charity night.

Deborah, of Newmarket Road, Cantley, said the pair were inspired after visiting the hospice, which treats children from the region.

She said: “I have never been so taken into doing something. We said to each other we have got to do it.”
