Paper Innovation raise charity cash
A New Year’s Eve rafﬂe organised by Paper Innovation raised more than £400, with the money donated to local charity the Space Centre.
Paper Innovation CEO Steve Johnston donated the ﬁrst prize of a week’s holiday in a luxury villa, along with supply of rafﬂe tickets and promotional ﬂyers. Ironically Steve sold the winning ticket to his fellow Preston North End senior walking footballer Fred Roberts.
Legendary former Preston star Alex Bruce presented the prize to the lucky winner. Fred said: “When I received the call I thought it was one of Steve’s practical jokes, but when I saw Alex Bruce walk in I knew it was true”.
The Space Centre provides specialist care for children and adults with a wide range of disabilities, and is an invaluable source of respite for thousands of families from the North-West and beyond.
