Harrogate estate agency dig deep to raise £26,000 for local children's hospice. 

Children with life-limiting illnesses can now enjoy their very own wildlife garden at Martin House Hospice.

It's all thanks to a partnership cultivated with staff from a Harrogate estate agency.

Linley & Simpson has broken its previous record by raising £26,000 for the Hospice at Boston Spa, near Wetherby, during another year of support for its chosen charity.

The backing included a volunteering programme which saw staff transform spare land in the grounds into a haven of peace for families.

It also encompasses a habitat for species such as butterflies, bees and hedgehogs.

Director Will Linley said: “Everyone in the community knows someone whose lives have been touched by the work of Martin House and this proved the inspiration for us.

“I would like to thank everyone – colleagues, customers and suppliers - who joined us on our journey. This propelled us past our previous fund-raising total for Martin House and we have now raised over £50,000 to support its work.

“It is a great way to mark the hospice’s 30th anniversary – as well as our own 20th.”
