Procomm Site Services, a Wilton-based firm specialising in temporary accommodation, has been supporting Appleton Wiske Pre-school as one of its chosen charities, and three of the firm’s representatives attended the North Yorkshire village to hand over a cheque for £1,141.

The money was raised through an annual raffle, and will help support the village pre-school, which was one of two nominated charities along with the Stockton-based autism charity, Daisy Chain.

Kim Gwynne, Dave Thornton and Peter McCarthy presented the cheque to Charlie Turner, chairman of the pre-school committee, manager Liz Huckle and assistant Sarah Watson.

The pre-school is open to children aged two and over, and has 30-hour funded places available.
