Knaresborough-based storage solution specialist Craven has donated £1,000 to Martin House Children’s Hospice in nearby Wetherby.
This followed the firm’s Christmas charity vote, where it invited its customers to decide which charitable organisation should receive the donation as an environmentally friendly alternative to sending Christmas cards.
Martin House won the 2015 poll with 42% of the vote.
John Hague from the charity was presented with the £1,000 at Craven’s head office by Natasha Webster, Zoe Tate and Laura Wickenden.
Craven’s sales director Neil Fox commented: “Craven would like to thank all those that took the time to vote. We had an overwhelming response to the e-vote format and we are delighted to have supported Martin House this year.
“Charity is something that is very close to the heart of the Craven team and we contribute wherever possible. We also donated to the runners up of our charity appeal and supplied Shelter £250, Honeypot £150 and Save The Family £100.”
Hague added: “We were naturally thrilled to be the people’s choice and receive a very generous donation of £1000.
“The aim of Martin House is to provide family led care for children with life shortening conditions.
“It is a place where children, young people and their families can come to stay from time to time along their journey and find support, rest and practical help.
“Therefore every penny we receive makes a massive difference – thank you to everyone at Craven and their customers who voted for us!”
