Charity funds raised at home of couple

A FESTIVE fundraiser at the home of a Wath couple collected hundreds of pounds for local charities.

The event, held at Tusculum in Wath-upon-Dearne, the home of Alan and Irene Hartley MBE, raised around £270.

All proceeds will be split between Rotherham Hospice and other local charity groups. Mrs Hartley said: “It is great to see people still giving to charity in tough times of austerity.”
