We did a chocolate raffle in aid of a local boy called George Patterson and raised a total of £123.38. He has limited mobility, as he contracted Meningitis as a little boy. He was in need of a special bed to be able to sleep safely at night without falling out.
This bed was worth £7000 and his parents had to buy it themselves as there was no support from anyone. We decided to get involved and support George and his family, who are well-known in Dorchester.
The whole team was involved, Karen, Charlotte, Leah, Becky and Jane by hosting the event and selling raffle tickets. We’re incredibly proud to have been able to support George and to be one of the businesses to help his family when they needed it.
