A Clevedon removal company has raised thousands of pounds for Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW).

Yeates Removals, based in Windmill Road, has reached the £15,000 mark after supporting the charity for the past 10 years.

It also helped move the charity into its Wraxall base a decade ago.

Managing director James Griffin said: “As a family business which has been operating in the area for more than 100 years we are delighted to have raised £15,000 for this local charity which does such brilliant and important work.

“We get a lot of satisfaction out of our partnership and try to do all we can to help in a variety of ways.

“It is a privilege to help as much as we can.”

CHSW corporate partnerships fundraiser Amanda Gallagher added: “We can not thank Yeates enough for its continued support of CHSW.”
