Councillor donates money to Peace Hospice after losing William Penn Leisure Centre bet
Peace Hospice Care was the beneficiary of the cheque after Three Rivers councillor, Tony Barton, bet the previous chairman of the district council, Chris Whatley-Smith, that the total cost of the project would exceed £10 million.
Conservative representative for Sarratt, Councillor Barton, presented the cheque to current chairman of the Liberal Democrat-run council, Les Mead.
Councillor Barton said: "I was obviously disappointed to lose the bet but pleased that such a deserving charity has benefited. I never like losing a wager but in this instance losing £1,000 was a bit easier to take knowing that it was going to Peace Hospice Care."
