Commoms Whisky Helps 2nd Charity
7:47am 20th January 2015
It's gone once and now it's going twice as a House of Commons whisky is being donated for a second time to benefit another Dorset charity.
The single malt scotch helped raise over £200 for The Friendship club at the Weymouth and Portland Mayor's raffle and now the winner of the raffle is passing it on.
It's going to The Will Mackaness trust to help raise more money to continue their work helping young people get involved in water sports.
Brian Willet said: "I was both surprised and very pleased to hear that I had won a prize in the raffle organised for The Mayor's Charity, The Friendship Club."
"Although I did not know that the prize had been kindly donated by Richard Drax, I decided that I would donate the bottle to The Will Mackaness Trust, a locally based trust that helps young people participate in water sports."
"The Trust will then have the opportunity to raise more funds that will help to continue their fantastic work with local youngsters."
Weymouth & Portland Mayor Cllr Kate Wheller said: "It's great that this one bottle of whisky can help another great cause.
"I'd like to thank Richard Drax MP for donating the bottle and Brian Willett for donating it to the Will Mackaness Trust".
