OUR chosen charity of the year, Martin House Children’s Hospice, has benefited by £1,000 after Linley & Simpson staff took part in a raffle to win an additional week’s holiday.
The lucky winner was valuation manager at our Ripon branch, Dave Stokoe.
Raffle tickets at £5 each, were sold among our 161 staff and the draw was made by Sarah, one of the young patients at Martin House.
Based at Boston Spa, the unique charity offers personalised care to children with life-limiting illnesses from across Yorkshire.
A total of £845 was raised, The amount was topped up by the company so £1,000 could be handed over the first fund-raising event of the year.
