Mole Valley District Council Housing Raffle Raises £2,200

Housing team with raffle prizes

Mole Valley District Council’s annual staff charity raffle raised an incredible £2,200 this year for local charity Besom to help local people in need.

The Dorking, Ashtead and Leatherhead Besomsrun by local Christian groups, work closely with the Housing Team at Mole Valley, improving the life for many vulnerable households. Their mission is to ‘provide a bridge between those who want to give money, time, skills or things, and those who are in need’.

The manager of the Housing Team at Mole Valley, Alison Wilks said, “Local organisations and Mole Valley District Council staff were incredibly generous with prizes this year and we would like to thank the many businesses that supported us.  The money raised will contribute towards the Besoms’ rent for premises and keeping their vehicles on the road.”  

The Besom Teams said ‘We are all so thrilled with such huge generosity! Thank you for being so amazingly kind. We love working with you all and know that a lot of time and care is taken over the housing situations of vulnerable clients, we do appreciate the way in which you do your work. We all give our time for free as you know, we mention it so that all of you will know that the money donated will go directly to the work of Besom. In 2019 we helped over 250 people and families and we cannot do any of this without the generosity of local people.”
