A CHARITY fundraising prize draw has been launched by The Station, Richmond, to raise cash for the trust which runs its building, and Swaledale Mountain Rescue.

Richmondshire Building Preservation Trust brought the building back to life in 2007, and now houses an art gallery, three-screen cinema, art shop, café-bar and a host of independent businesses, all of whom have donated prizes to the draw.

The Station’s communications co-ordinator, Jemma Gregory, said: “We have had some amazing prizes donated by our independent businesses here at The Station.

"It just shows how much The Station has to offer and we look forward to raising as much money as possible for two very worthy local charities.”

Some of the prizes on offer include: dinner for two at The Hildyard Arms, courtesy of Richmond Brewing Company; a family ticket to The Station Cinema, plus drinks and popcorn; family of four Sundae voucher for Archer’s Ice Cream Parlour; swing dance lessons from Charlotte Jacqueline; artisan food hamper from The Angel’s Share Bakery; two tickets to Mammy’s Boys Comedy Dining evening at The Station Café | Bar; and Tweedmill throw, Peony bag and Beebombs from The Station Shop, plus a family goody bag from The Station team.

Tickets cost £2 and can be purchased from The Shop at The Station and The Station Café Bar until the draw on Friday, August 30.
