A York hospice has seen a dramatic increase in donations after the death of two climbers who were fundraising for the site.
Steve Barber and John Taylor, both from York, were among nine people killed in an avalanche near the French ski resort of Chamonix last Thursday.
The pair were raising money for St Leonard's Hospice whilst on their trip. Since their deaths, hundreds of people have donated money to the cause. Donations have reached almost £4,500.
Janet Morley, a fundraiser for St Leonard's Hospice, said: "Very touched that people have reacted in this way.
"Our telephones yesterday were ringing constantly. People wanting to support because they'd read the sad news, and knew that Steve and John were climbing and were raising money for St Leonard's Hospice.
"These are people that didn't know them, and didn't necessarily know St Leonard's particularly well. So it's very humbling."
