The team at Town and Country Southern estate agents at Drayton managed to increase its fundraising for Macmillan Cancer Support by almost a third during 2015.

Director Colin Shairp said the total raised for the charity during 2015 was £2,004, with £380 coming from a raffle during the firm’s Christmas reception for property professionals and clients. Guests who couldn’t make the event then added another £114 to the total.

‘Macmillan is our chosen charity because it was such a help when team member Sarah Banks’s father was taken ill,’ said Colin.

‘Cancer is a disease that touches many lives and there can hardly be anyone who doesn’t know someone it has affected. We will continue fundraising during 2016 after our 29 per cent increase over 2014 and it would be great to top £2,000 by a much larger amount.’
