A LOCAL car dealership has raised over £10,000 for a children's hospice.

Staff at Perrys in Barnsley joined forces with other dealerships in its group and raised money for Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice.

Staff, who baked and sold tasty cakes to customers, also generously donated items such as an iPad to sell to boost the final sum.

The Perrys group auctioned a 40-year-old Vauxhall Viva, as well as a signed Barnsley FC shirt from the club's FA Cup semi-final visit to Wembley.

Having counted everything up, Perrys handed over a cheque for £10,104.50 to Julie Hampson from the charity on January 19.

Darren Ardron, regional director at Perrys, said: "Bluebell Wood is such a worthwhile and humbling charity. We're proud that we have been fundraising for them since the hospice opened and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future."
