To mark the official opening of Pressers House, the company presented a £1,020 cheque to the Mayor and Mayoress of Calderdale, Clr Howard Blagborough and Catherine Kirk for the Mayor’s Appeal which raised funds for the charities Together for Looked-after Children, The Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice at Bradley and The Brighouse Rest Centre.
