Ex­tras will help char­i­ties

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping The Hospices -

NEW­INGREEN based Hol­i­day Ex­tras has boosted the work of a Kent chil­dren’s hospice.

Founder and non-ex­ec­u­tive chair­man Gerry Pack and chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Steve Lawrence, pre­sented the Demelza House Chil­dren’s Hospice with a cheque for £25,000.

To mark its suc­cess, the Hol­i­day Ex­tras board set aside £100,000 for char­i­ta­ble do­na­tions this year, with three lo­cal char­i­ties each be­ing awarded £25,000.

The re­main­der is be­ing di­vided be­tween other good causes.

The Demelza House pre­sen­ta­tion fol­lows Kent Air Am­bu­lance’s re­ceipt of its cheque at the com­pany’s 25th an­niver­sary lunch in April.

The Pil­grims Hospice will be re­ceiv­ing the third do­na­tion later in the year.

In ad­di­tion to the £25,000, Demelza House has also re­ceived a do­na­tion of £250, raised by a re­cent bar­be­cue or­gan­ised by the cus­tomer re­la­tions and fi­nance depart­ment.
