Colburn business launches grand charity raffle

TVG staff are hoping to beat last year's total.

Tickets will be available today for a grand charity raffle organised by Colburn-based TVG.

Last year, the company raised more than £1,400 for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and staff hope to raise even more for the charity this year.

Local businesses, as well as the company’s customers and suppliers, have donated more than 120 prizes for the raffle.

Organiser Paula Underwood, from TVG, said: “We raised a large sum last year totalling £1,466 for this worthy cause and want to raise over double if we can this year.

“We have a fantastic array of prizes and I hope the local community will come down and buy some tickets to help us raise as much as possible.”

Tickets cost £1 each and will be on sale today under the clock in Richmond Market Place today between 10am and 2pm.

There will be further chances to buy on November 18 and 25.

The draw will be made on December 14.
