Jane McDonald has shared an emotional thankyou to those who supported a charity close to her heart following the death of her beloved partner Eddie Rothe.
Rothe, 67, died in March after a battle with lung cancer, with the TV star announcing his death on the day of his funeral in April.
Following the heartbreaking news, the cruising star had spoken out about the generosity from fans who had dug deep and donated to the Wakefield Hospice, who cared for her long-term partner when he was ill.
Now Jane has revealed the figure people had raised for the organisation in the following months, with the total surpassing £10,000 in Rothe’s memory.
She wrote on Twitter on Tuesday: ‘I would like to say a huge heartfelt Thank You to everyone who donated to The Wakefield Hospice Just Giving fund in Ed’s memory.
‘Your generosity has raised a total of £12,125.38 which will positively benefit the patients and their families.’
Jane wrote: ‘I want to thank everyone most sincerely for the wonderful cards and messages of support that I have received since the awful news was announced that I had lost my beloved Ed. I’m so touched by each and every one.
‘All the kind thoughts and words have meant so much to me and many of you have let me know that you are going through the same thing as me having lost loved ones and I wish you all love and strength back.
‘I’m hugely grateful for everyone who very kindly donated to the Just Giving page for Wakefield Hospice in Ed’s memory.
