Barnstaple storage facility raises more than £6,000 for Children’s Hospice South West.

A self storage facility in Barnstaple has raised £6,467 for Children’s Hospice South West over the course of two years.

Dainton Self Storage set themselves a challenge to raise £5,000 - then smashed their total.

Fundraising included taking part in It’s A Knockout event and reselling returned cardbord boxes for £1 each.

Shaun Duncan, operations director at Dainton, said: “I was confident my team would not let me down and they embraced the challenge as I knew they would.
