A CHARITY that supports Malton Hospital has been given a huge boost in the form of a “sizeable” amount of cash back from a health trust which was at the centre of a controversial decision to close a ward shortly after it had been refurbished.

The Malton, Norton and District League of Friends, which has raised more than £2 million for patient care in its 34-year history, has been given the cash by NHS North Yorkshire and York.

The money had originally been donated to help to cover the Ryedale Ward revamp, which cost more than £1 million last year.
