Yorkshire branches raise the roof for childrens’ charity

We all like a good knees-up but when staff from our 12 North Yorkshire Branches got together for the annual Jewson Area Awards night, they also managed to raise an impressive £1,148 for our ‘Together’ charity Barnardo’s.

More than 120 staff and their partners from our Whitby, Scarborough, Pickering, Malton, Bridlington, Driffield, York, Thirsk, Northallerton, Ripon, Harrogate and Wetherby branches took to the dance floor at the event, which was held at the Flamingoland Theme Park and Zoo. Everyone certainly enjoyed the entertainment from stand up comedian Bobby Bender, while Scarborough-based punk cover band, Snatch, kept everyone rocking till late.

The Area Awards, which were presented by Area Director Martin Coates, are a great chance to say thank you to everyone for their hard work over the last 12 months.
