Demelza thankful for Lions support

It costs a staggering £8m a year to run the Demelza Hospices in Eltham and Sittingbourne, and Lions defender Alan Dunne has leant a helping hand by making a generous cheque presentation to Donna Wells, Demelza's Corporate Partnership manager just before Christmas.
Millwall and its fans supported the Eltham unit, which cares for children with life-limiting illnesses and their families, as part of the Football League's Help for Hospices initiative in 2011/12.
The Lions have continued to donate items to Demelza for raffles and auctions, but Dunney, who along with Scott Barron, became an ambassador to Demelza on behalf of the club last year, has maintained a personal interest in the work of the charity.
David Forde, who had also visited the unit previously, accompanied the defender on his latest trip, and Donna Wells spoke of Demelza's gratitude for the ongoing support.
She said: "I'd like to thank Alan for his generosity and Millwall for all the help they give us. The children who come here are all from the south London area and we are delighted to have the support of our local football club."
