Hugh Rice in Beverley say they are committed to the town and community and were delighted to supply the star prize for a competition run by the Beverley Christmas Lights Appeal.
Store Manager Gavin Longridge met with members from the group and with the competition winner, Celia Parnaby at their Toll Gavel store to present her with the £100 gift voucher she won in the ‘Find a Date’ competition.
In all the charity raised almost £300 through the competition which will go towards funding the festive lights that enrich the town centre during the Christmas period.
Speaking about why Hugh Rice, who employ over 20 people and operate two town centre shops got involved Mr. Longridge said;
“Hugh Rice are committed to the town. We want to support Beverley as a town and Christmas is also such an important commercial time of year for the town’s traders.”
“We feel an integral part of the Beverley retail experience and we want to contribute to make Beverley a destination and bring local people and others from outside the area to experience Beverley as a shopping destination.”
Mr. Longridge also explained the company’s reasoning behind having two stores in central Beverley, he said;
“We took a decision to expand our product range for the people of Beverley. So we split the business unit as we could not find a unit large enough to bring everything under one roof.”
“So we now trade with two very different styles. Our store on Toll Gavel is for our fine jewellery, where we have a fine collection of wedding rings and diamonds, while Lux by Hugh Rice focuses on fashion brands such as Pandora and Armani.”
“Hugh Rice is a wonderful place to work. It is nice to be helping people with an item that will be celebrating a particular occasion and sharing that with people is a privilege.”
Prue Blake, Sectary of the Beverley Christmas Lights Appeal Group said;
“We are all very grateful for any support we get, and Hugh Rice has supported the Charismas Lights in the town for many years.”
“Through their ongoing support not only are we able to raise money but we also raise awareness of the efforts put into lighting the town up at Christmas.”
