Two charities shared more than £3,400 raised by our Guildford region from the staff’s annual Christmas raffle and auction.
The good causes to benefit were The Royal Marsden, a specialist cancer treatment hospital in London, and the Emily Ash Trust, which works to improve the lives of children and young people suffering with cancer.
