DONATIONS of small change have added up to make a big difference thanks to fundraising efforts at a Scarborough barbers.

Staff at Headers in Aberdeen Walk have been collecting donations of 5ps and other coins throughout the year in aid of Martin House Children’s Hospice.

The appeal, called “Any P Will Do”, has raised an impressive £1,089.63 for the hospice at Boston Spa, which cares for youngsters from the Scarborough area.

The collection is now in its second year and will continue to run for a third.

Anyone wishing to donate is welcome to call into Headers, who will be only too pleased to pass it on to the hospice.

George Sowersby, from the Scarborough Friends of Martin House, said: “We would very much like to congratulate all the staff at Headers and the general public for their fantastic achievement.

“The amount is all the more excellent due to the economic situation.”

He added that Martin House is the only hospice serving Scarborough and all of North Yorkshire for children and teenagers with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions.

It costs over £4 million to run each year and relies mostly on donations and collections.

Fundraisers will be holding a collection and selling raffle tickets for a new Peugeot 107 car at the North Bay Railway on Sunday June 19 from noon until 4pm
