It is a very special charity and we look forward to working together to help fund the vital care, support and friendship that Francis House gives to children, young adults and their families across the region.”
The company is planning an annual Golf Day in September which aims to raise over £5000 and Tom will be encouraging everyone in the company, plus customers and suppliers to get behind the campaign.
