Friends in thanks for supporters

THE Scarborough Friends of Martin House Children’s Hospice wish to thank a number of supporters who have raised money for the cause.

Representative George Sowersby said: “We would like to thank Elaine Jackson, who raised £250 by running a bingo session at Sherburn Village Hall, and also to all those who participated in the event.

“Also to Denise and David Ward of East Ayton, who are also friends of Martin House, for their kind donation of £245.75 raised by a tractor run though local villages.”
