£1,220 was raised for ‘Hearing Dogs for Deaf People’ at the 2016 LABC North and East Yorkshire Building Excellence Awards at The Royal York Hotel.
Hearing Dogs for Deaf People was the LABC North and East Yorkshire Building Excellence Awards chosen charity for the night, with a 50/50 raffle taking place prior to the awards being presented.
The lucky winner of £610 Dylan Gelder representing Keepmoat Ltd very kindly donated his win back to the charity to make the overall total for the charity £1,220.
Jean Todd from Hearing Dogs for Deaf People said: “On behalf of the entire team I would like to thank everyone involved in the Building Excellence Awards.
“We were thrilled to have been chosen as this year’s charity and to receive the fantastic donation of £1,220 as well as this great opportunity to create awareness of our work. With no government funding, we rely entirely on the generosity of individuals, groups and businesses in the community.
“This amazing support will help us to continue to create our life-changing partnerships.”
Les Chapman organiser of the LABC North and East Yorkshire Excellence Awards said: “We are very pleased to be able to support such a worthy charity which help so many and to Dylan for his generosity.”
