Selby Hands of Hope latest
A LOCAL bank have come up with a unique way of helping to raise funds for the Selby Hands of Hope.
Staff and customers at the Halifax branch in Gowthorpe have put on a name-the-bear competition, and the cause has been well-backed.
Samantha Williams, customer manager at the branch, praised the Hands of Hope charity and also their own campaign saying: “As a branch we were wanting to support the local community through fundraising and volunteering.
“We chose the Hands of Hope and we’re now looking at getting involved in more events like this in the future.
“There’s a number of events in the New Year so we hopefully can get some more fundraisers arranged.”

Meanwhile, SHOH have finalised details regarding their final event of 2012, with a charity football game taking place.
