Katy Wood, corporate fundraising co-ordinator at the hospice, said: "This donation will really make a difference to patients at the hospice.
"It costs £5.6m to keep the hospice running every year and it only receives funding for 48 of the 365 days.
"Our volunteers save the hospice about £1.6m per year and we can't thank Steve enough for his continued support, which has resulted in this outstanding donation."
Cargill in Morley Street, east Hull, presents up to 50 employees, retirees, or employee teams with Cargill Cares volunteer awards for outstanding service in the community at any one time.
EAST YORKS: A hospital trust in East Yorkshire has been awarded gold level accreditation for reducing its carbon footprint.
The Energy Saving Trust gave the accolade to Northern Lincolnshire and Goole Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust for the second year running.
The trust, which is in charge of Goole and District Hospital, reduced its footprint by 17.7 per cent from 2005-06 to 2010-11.
This has been achieved by staff using a shuttle bus between sites, a park and ride scheme, using video conferencing instead of travelling across sites and staff cycling to work instead of driving.
