Fundraiser of the Year Award
Winner: Leigh Yates
Fundraising – thy name is Leigh Yates from Porthleven.
The local school has a new kitchen and playground thanks to her tireless efforts to secure a huge MOD grant.
Not to mention the thousands she has raised for discos, Easter egg hunts and Christmas parties. A string of events to thank the Armed Forces came to be because of Leigh.
The mum-of-two even helped set up a local charity for those in need, like the family who had no heating at Christmas.
In total – for one good cause or another – Leigh has raised almost four hundred thousand pounds!
