A CROYDON mum has raised over £400 for a hospice that cared for her father and aunt.
Mandy Kingsford, 33, surpassed her target of £400 for St Christopher's Hospice with her colleagues at the Specsavers stores in Croydon's Church Street and North End. They hosted a charity day, complete with a prize draw, teddy tombola, children's lucky dip and bake sale.
And next she is taking part in a charity sky dive to raise more cash.
Mandy said: "I know St Christopher's has a special place in many people's hearts, including mine, but I have been completely overwhelmed by the support from my colleagues and the community.
"I'd like to thank everyone for helping me reach my target for such as worthy cause. With you all behind me, I'm feeling confident about the challenge ahead."
