A collection and auction for two tickets to see Manchester United play raised £2500 for Ty Gobaith Children’s Hospice which provides specialist nursing, practical, and emotional care to terminally ill children and their families.
The following day h&b members met to hear and discuss the product committee chairs’ recommendations for purchasing agreements for the coming year. Invitations to quote will be sent out shortly. The group says that it hopes negotiations will be concluded satisfactorily, ready for trading in the New Year.
