A SCARBOROUGH ice cream parlour has shared the sweet taste of success by donating their Great Yorkshire Show prize money to a good cause.

The Harbour Bar in Sandside scooped three first prizes, two second and one third prize at the show, winning £160.

Owner Giulian Alonzi said he had submitted entries to the show for around five years and was happy to use the prize money to help Martin House Children’s Hospice in Boston Spa, near Tadcaster.

He said: “I told the show organisers to make the cheque out to Martin House as they need it more than I do.

“Hospices have an uphill struggle and most of their funding comes from public donations.”

George Sowersby collected the cheque on behalf of the Scarborough Friends of Martin House. He said: “We would like to give a big thank you to Giulian and the staff at the Harbour Bar for their kind donation.

“We are very grateful indeed as it costs over £4 million a year to run the hospice. We rely very much on donations like this and it was a fantastic surprise.”
