Richmond store runs Mother’s Day charity fundraiser

A Richmond shop is running a charity fundraiser for Mother’s Day.

Customers to Out of the Box! in King Street are being invited to write a card to their mum and place it on the board in the shop.

All they then have to do is make a donation to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance to be entered into a prize draw.

Shop owner Roger Nutting said: “We wanted to do something a little different for Mother’s Day and we also wanted to contribute to the work of the YAA.

“Having spoken to the YAA locally and gained their support, we decided to combine our ideas and make it into something really special for Mothers Day.

“We also approached one of our suppliers who, in turn, donated a wonderful hamper for the event.

“We are placing this as the main prize, together with Out of the Box! gift vouchers for runners up.”

Roger added: “So far, the response has been brilliant, with many mums’ names already on our window board.”
