Dinner raises £4,593 for children’s hospital

A dinner with a raffle and auction at the Plough Inn, Scalby, raised £4,593 for Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital in London.

Organisers Mark Deeming and Tom Harrison work for Qdos, which owns the Plough, and which has been raising money for the charity for many years.

Much of the food was donated by Stepney Hill Farm and the Prosecco came from Betton Wine. Many other businesses gave prizes and auction lots.

Mark and Tom will run the London Marathon for the charity. Mark said: “The specialised work undertaken at Great Ormond Street benefits children right across the UK. The hospital is a national institution and helps patients from all corners of the country, including Yorkshire, and often in the most difficult circumstances.

“As such, the charity is the perfect partner for Qdos,” he said. “Our pantomimes are created in Yorkshire and enjoyed in theatres throughout Britain.”
