Family fun day in memory of former director
Family and colleagues turned out in force to help raise funds in memory of one of the former directors of timber merchants A J Charlton at the weekend.
The Charltons Family Fun Day, organised by employee Andrew Ball, raised £1,563 for Dorothy House Hospice Care in memory of sales and marketing director Michael Charlton, who died last year
Mr Ball said: "The turn-out of those working at the company and their extended families was fantastic. I think that it is fair to say that from young children to their grandparents everyone had a really enjoyable and fun day."
Employees from Charltons Furniture in Radstock as well as from the Timberstore and the sawmills at Buckland Down all attended.
During the afternoon, the Michael Charlton Cup was presented to company chairman and chief executive AJ Charlton as a lifetime's achievement award.
