YEOVIL NEWS: Pittards has a heart for the hospital

THE Yeovil-based Pittards has presented Yeovil District Hospital with a cheque for £595 which it has raised from the proceeds of the sale of special leather hearts.

The hearts were produced when lockdown was brought in following the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic and they were gifted to families and key workers as a way of saying “thank you” and to let people know they were in our thoughts.

By popular demand the Yeovil firm put them on general sale at £5 a heart with £3.50 from each one sold being donated to the Yeovil hospital.
