Firm receives fundraiser award

Atherton Godfrey, which has supported the charity throughout the year with a range of fundraising activities, was presented with the Fundraiser Award.

The firm has raised around £6,500 through a range of activities including writing free wills, running a half marathon, coffee mornings, taking part in a race night and organising a dress down day.

Other nominees for the Fundraiser Award were Terry Deeming, who joined the Fashion Show team in May. Only a few days after the show, he organised another event which raised £1,800.

Thorne Yacht Club Regatta were also nominated for the event they held in September which raised £2,000 and they donated all proceeds to the Fashion Show programme for 2014.

Charles Godfrey, the firm's senior partner, said: "We are absolutely delighted that Aurora has chosen to present Atherton Godfrey with this award.

"It has been a pleasure working with Aurora during 2013 and we hope to continue helping them to raise even more funds throughout the coming year."

A special award was presented to the family of the late Sue Wilkinson. Sue helped to set up the Aurora 'Care to Share' shop on Scot Lane in the town centre and also did a huge amount of voluntary work before she lost her 16 year battle with cancer at the age of 41. The success of the fundraising means that Aurora is now able to open a new shop in Worksop, which will be named SW1 after Sue.
