“This amount will pay for around 50 family holidays this year. Each family with a child with cancer finds that a short break in the UK really helps during sometimes hard and lengthy treatments," she added.

The hotel’s director Nick Bannister commented: “My family and the team at the hotel are delighted that the money has gone to such a good cause".
