The Rotary Club has raised more than £750,000 for children's hospices over the past year, in its partnership with the Association of Children's Hospices, the umbrella charity for the UK.
The partnership aims to increase awareness of hospices, which cared for 3,338 children last year, and to fundraise for existing hospices and future projects.
Each of the 29 Rotary districts decides who receives the money it raises and all 26 UK hospices have benefited as a result, a Rotary spokeswoman said. More fundraising events are planned for the summer, including a motorcycle cavalcade from Leamington Spa to Meriden, which will benefit a £15m hospice to be built near Bristol, among other projects.
Barbara Gelb, the chief executive of the association, said: "The partnership with The Rotary Club goes a long way in making a difference to the lives of thousands of children that use hospice services each year."
