Trekking pals Alex Moreton-Deakin and Lyn Holden’s fundraising plans have been given a sparkling surge by jewellery makers.
Jenny and Rob Dutson of The Workshop, Hebden Bridge, generously offered to design, make and donate a special one-off piece of jewellery for the two employees of Boots in the town to raffle in aid of Macmillan fundraising.
Alex, pictured second right with Lyn (second left) and the Dutsons, said they were very grateful for their kindness and generosity. “It is a beautiful pendant made from a black Tahetian pearl, green quartz and diamonds on a gold chain valued at £1,000,” she said.
The pendant (inset picture) is now on show at The Workshop in Hollins Place, Bridge Gate.
Tickets are £2 each and are available from The Workshop, both Boots pharmacies in Hebden Bridge, Just Books, Harold Crabtree’s, the Post Office and also from Lynne and Alex, who work at the Valley Road Boots store. The winning ticket will be drawn on the evening of Friday, September 27, at The Dusty Miller in Mytholmroyd, after a celebratory meal - tickets also available.
Lyn and Alex will be among Boots employees nationwide who will be climbing Mount Kilimanjaro at the end of January to raise money for the cancer support charity.
Any other businesses that would like to donate raffle prizes can still contact Alex and Lyn.
