The Spireites have donated £5,000 to their charity partner for last season, Ashgate Hospicecare.

The club generated funds for Ashgate Hospicecare and raised awareness of the charity’s activities as part of the link-up between the two organisations.

Chesterfield director Ashley Carson, who presented a cheque to Ashgate Hospicecare at half time in Saturday’s game against Northampton Town, said: “We were delighted to be able to hand over a four-figure sum to a charity which touches the lives of so many people in the area. We will continue to support the valuable work being done by Ashgate Hospicecare in whatever way we can.”

Ashgate Hospicecare’s director of fundraising and marketing, Esther Preston, gratefully received the cheque. She said: ”This very generous donation couldn't have come at a better time as demand for our services continues to grow. 

“This will make a big difference to many local people as £5,000 could pay for 100 people to attend our day hospice, which brings comfort and relief to people with any life limiting illness and gives valuable respite to their carers and family.”
