MKM raise £111 from Gin Raffle!

A Hartlepool builders’ merchant has continued its support of their local Hospice by holding a raffle in aid of Alice House.

MKM in Burn Road raised £111 from staff and customers and presented it to Greg Hildreth from Alice House on 27 February.

Lee Dees Director at MKM said “MKM Hartlepool wanted to raise money for Alice House Hospice and decided that a bottle of special gin would perk up our customers in branch.  We chose a special Monkeys 47 dry gin and both customers and colleagues at MKM joined in the raffle.  Last Friday one of our customers called Paul kindly picked the winning ticket.”

Greg said “We receive great support from the staff and customers of MKM and they have taken part in a number of fundraising activities over the years as well as the company being regular entrants in our annual Golf Tournament. We are so pleased to see that this generosity is ongoing and would like to thank all who supported the raffle and hope that Lisa enjoys her gin!  As ever, all of this money will be used to fund care for local patients and their families.”
