Workers at the British Library in Boston Spa held their annual raffle recently in aid of St Gemma’s Hospice Leeds.

This year’s total raised was £1,202 but over the last seven years, the employees have raised over £10,000.

“A member of St Gemma’s came to do our draw and did a speech explaining how important this money was for St Gemma’s,” said Paula Perree.

“We had over 46 prizes which included 26 food/wine hampers and donations from various local businesses.

“All the food/wine hampers are made up from generous donations from staff at the British Library.”
