Priti Patel MP presents Charity Cheque
Witham MP, Priti Patel, visited the Ladbrokes store in Witham on Friday to present a cheque to charity Dreams Come True [Friday 30 November 2018].
Ladbrokes raised £3,900 for Dreams Come True at their shop in Witham and Priti was delighted to present the cheque to the Chief Executive of the charity, Richard Ashton. Dreams Come True is a national children’s charity which organises unforgettable experiences for children and young people with serious and life-limiting medical conditions.
After the presentation, Priti said:
“This is such a worthwhile cause and I was delighted to present a cheque to Dreams Come True on behalf of our local Ladbrokes shop.
“The team have done a fantastic job raising a substantial amount of money for Dreams Come True to help them continue their excellent work and ensure more children and young people with life-limiting illnesses fulfil their dreams.”
Danny Puerto of Ladbrokes said: “We are delighted to be able to support such a great local cause, that makes a real difference to young children with serious and sometime life-threatening conditions. At Ladbrokes, we are a proud member of our local community and this is just one example of the positive role we play in our area.”
Richard Ashton, Chief Executive at Dreams Come True said: “On behalf of everyone at the charity I would like to thank Danny and Ladbrokes for their help, support and generosity in making childrens’ dreams come true. Every one of our amazing children and young people has a story of hardship to tell and each has a dream that keeps them going during the bad times, and it never ceases to inspire us that people are willing to help to ensure that there is a bit of happiness brought into their lives. Thank you so very much for making a difference.”
