The league of friends of a hospital in Cornwall has received a £1,000 donation.

Peter Bray, from the National Grid Benevolent Fund, presented a cheque to Bodmin Hospital League of Friends chairman Susie Gore at the charity’s annual general meeting.

Mr Bray said: “Due to the very nature of what the National Grid do - connecting people to the energy we all use – the National Grid is at the heart of communities and each year we make significant charitable donations to community organisations and charities in areas where National Grid’s work is impacting on local people.

“This year we are delighted to be able to present this cheque to Bodmin Hospital League of Friends who support the hospital, its staff and patients in all they do. It’s a hospital which is not only for Bodmin - it serves people countywide as do we.”
