Paul Daniels is the latest celebrity to back the #SaveOurHospice campaign.
The TV magician, who performs at The Platform this Saturday night, said: “My wife Debbie McGee and I have only just heard of your campaign to raise money for St John’s Hospice.
“Well done and good luck to you.
“What people don’t realise that every penny helps. A lot of people think that just because they haven’t got much it is not worth giving, but it is! If everyone in the area gave what they could afford, large or small, it would add up to enough.
“If you are a reader, please support this great campaign.”
