A HOSPICE has received thousands of pounds from a charity walk committee.

St Mary's Hospice has thanked the Keswick to Barrow committee for its £3,000 donation and continued support.

The K2B walk is an annual event aimed at raising money for a host of local charities.

Despite this year's cancellation, the K2B committee is continuing its support for Ulverston charity, St Mary's Hospice.

A spokesman for St Mary's Hospice said: ""We were grateful to receive this donation of £3,000 from the K2B Committee and thank them for their continued support despite the difficulties of this year."
