They arranged prizes which included holiday vouchers, a mountain bike and a MacBook Pro.

Mike Bell, partner in charge at Deloitte, said: “We were delighted to present St Catherine’s with a cheque for £50,000 to thank them, and to help them continue all of the wonderful things they do to help people in our community.

“I would really encourage other businesses in the area to think about how they might be able to help the hospice too, as they rely so heavily on our support to provide the vital services we all benefit from.”

Deloitte is one of the town’s major employers.

It set up a Gatwick office in April 2016 and by September this year it will employ 850 people at this office.
