The Wessex Quiltmakers raised more than £1,000 for Winchester Hospice earlier this year. 

The Winchester-based group held an exhibition as part of the Michaelmas Fair in the Hospital of St Cross.

Hampshire Chronicle: The raffled quilt

They raffled a quilt, part of which made by long standing member Brenda Lothian who died at the hospice last year. 

A cheque for £1,071 was presented to Jo Westerman, from the hospice, at one of Wessex Quiltmakers' recent meetings.
