HUNTERS Estate Agents in Skipton, along with branch partners in Ilkley and Otley, are helping raise money for The Principle Trust Children’s Charity through their marketing boards.

Hunters’ “For Sale” boards will have a brand-new design that are noticeable around the district The branches are now sponsoring the charity and the new boards represent this community relationship they are proud to support.

Every sponsored board equates to a £10 donation made direct to the Skipton based children’s charity.

Mike Davies, founder and chairman of the charity said “The trustees and I are extremely grateful to both Lester Hurst and Andrew Procter of Hunters for agreeing to create this terrific partnership.

“We believe that customers of Hunters will realise that they are much more than estate agents and work positively and financially through their sponsorship and help to a children’s charity.

“They will also create greater awareness of the charity by the advertising, which will appear on the Hunters’ boards, and from information leaflets available in the Hunters Offices. Hunters will certainly be helping and assisting the local community, and even more children who are less fortunate, underprivileged, disadvantaged or disabled will be able to enjoy a much-needed break or holiday.”

Andrew Procter, Hunters Partner in Skipton is delighted to be supporting the charity.

He said: “Hunters Procter & Co are committed to supporting the local community in which they operate. Our new relationship with The Principle Trust Children’s Charity means we can support disadvantaged children across North and West Yorkshire and bring awareness to the area about the work the charity does.”

The Principle Trust Children’s Charity supports local underprivileged, disadvantaged and disabled children by providing free holidays in their holiday homes based in the Haven Holiday Resort, at Marton Mere in Blackpool and at Ribblesdale Park, Gisburn. The cost is around £44,000 per year.
