Laverack’s sausage rolls raise £3732 for local charity.

The team at an East Yorkshire butchers and bakers have raised over £3732 for a local Children’s Hospice.

Family run Laverack’s, who have four shops across the region, were invited to join in Martin House’s March Business Accumulator Challenge, where local businesses are challenged to change £30 into £3000 over the course of a month.

The charity, based at Boston Spa, provides care for babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions from across Yorkshire, 365 days a year, with the majority of their annual running costs of £9 million coming from voluntary donations and fundraising.

Amy Laverack, a Director at Laverack’s said: “My Auntie has done lots of fundraising work for Martin House, so I was inspired to help too.

“We came up with the idea to create a different flavoured sausage roll and sell it through our shops in Holme on Spalding Moor, Pocklington, and at Wetherells in Selby.

“We created a sausage roll with turmeric puff pastry, mango chutney and curried spiced sausage meat, with £1 from each one going to the charity.

“Across the shops, all the staff were very involved which created a great buzz and our customers were extremely generous too which has allowed us to raise well above our target.”

The money raised will go towards caring for over 400 children each year, along with their families, including planned respite stays, symptom control, emergency care, end of life care and bereavement support.
