FAMILIES in Scarborough helped turn up the heat at an end of summer fundraiser.
Staff and their families at Willmott Dixon Partnership’s Scarborough branch raised more than £530 for African water charity Dekamile.
The work force hosted a barbecue for staff of Yorkshire Coast Homes at Dalby Forest.
The day featured a host of activities including face painting, rounders, and a raffle which alone raised £50.
Fundraising events took place at Willmott Dixon’s branches across the UK in areas where the company is currently carrying out work.
Mel Watson, Willmott Dixon Partnerships’ customer community officer, said: “Willmott Dixon decided to support Dekamile because every penny raised goes directly to the village, and the charity’s aims in leaving lasting legacies are very much in line with our own.
“We all had such a fantastic day and it was great to be able to raise money for such a worthy cause.
“We had several donations for the raffle and we would like to thank individuals and small businesses who gave so generously.
“It was also a great opportunity to spend time with staff from our client, Yorkshire Coast Homes, in a more informal environment than we are used to, and I can safely say that everybody enjoyed the day.”
Willmott Dixon Partnerships works with Yorkshire Coast Homes on a £3.2million contract to repair and maintain 4,500 homes in the Scarborough area.
