Hills’ £500 Christmas gift to local charities

Customers of Marlborough-based Hills shouldn’t expect a Christmas card this year – the firm is giving its budget away to good causes.

Instead, members of the public can log on to the firm’s Facebook page at to decide which charities get an extra Christmas present this year.

Voters can choose between Doorway Project, a homeless drop-in centre based in Chippenham; C.A.L.M., supporting children with cancer and leukaemia in Swindon and Marlborough; and Fairfield Farm College, a specialist college in Westbury offering day and residential courses for young people with learning difficulties.

The winner of the poll will receive £300, with £100 each going to the runners up. The results will be announced in the first week of January.

Mike Hill, chief executive, said: “We undertake charitable giving throughout the year and hope that this donation will enable the deserving causes to continue their excellent work.”
