Scotts Fish & Chips Holds First Fundraising Event In Aid Of Chosen Charity St Leonard’s Hospice
Scotts Fish and Chips has completed its first fund raising event for its chosen charity of the year – York’s St Leonard’s Hospice.
The Easter raffle held at the Bilbrough restaurant and takeaway raised £140 for the hospice.
Two first prizes of a large Thornton’s Easter egg, a bottle of Prosecco and a £10 voucher for Scotts Fish & Chips, were won by Sarah & Malc Potter, from Bridlington, and Jacqueline Prince from Leeds.
The chippy has chosen York’s St Leonard’s Hospice as its charity of the year and will be staging a number of activities over the coming months to help raise funds for the organisation.
Tony Webster, owner of Scotts, said: “St Leonard’s hospice is a charity that provides care and support to locals and it is a pleasure for us to contribute to this cause. Our first fund raising event was definitely a success.
“Sarah, one of our two lucky winners, is a coeliac sufferer, and travels regularly from Bridlington to eat our gluten free fish and chips. We are delighted that her name was drawn from the hat!”
St Leonard’s provides specialist palliative care and support for locals with life limiting illnesses, extending support to families and carers.
In addition, it also provides complementary therapy, lymphoedema care, physiotherapy, social work, bereavement, occupational therapy and spiritual care.
