Bell Donate £100
We would like to say a big thanks to Bell Publishing Ltd for their donation of £100 recently. Bell Publishing Ltd is a family-owned international media and events company based in Gravesend. Editorial Director, Sarah McRitchie, explained, "Each week at head office we have a fresh fruit box delivered. The staff then give a donation for each piece of fruit they take to eat. The company matches the sum and makes a donation to a charity or not for profit organisation. On this occasion our Assistant Group Manager, Samantha Bull, suggested ADO. We were more than happy to donate to such a great cause."
The donation was used to add to the Silly Sally Fund to pay for the veterinary bills and subsequent electric fencing installed at Poets Corner.
