Popping tips and loose change in collection pots at a Chapel-en-le-Frith garage has raised over £837 for local patients with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses.

Rob Kenyon MOT and Servicing Centre on Bowden Hey Road has displayed yellow Blythe House collection pots in its reception area since July 2015.

During that time, the garage has raised an amazing amount of money to provide free care and services to local patients, their families and carers.

Rob Kenyon said: ‘We collect our tips, and if someone needs a new bulb or other small item for their vehicle, we give it to them for free but suggest that they put the equivalent amount as a donation in the collection pot. We’re really pleased to have raised a fantastic amount for a worthy local charity.’
