The Mick George Ltd Skip of Gold will contain £1,000 for a local good cause

Skip of Gold is once again providing local sports clubs and community organisations and projects with another opportunity to win £1,000 to help with their valuable work.

Jon Stump, finance director at Mick George Ltd, said: “Skip of Gold is an initiative which allows us to delve a little deeper to uncover what it is the people of Peterborough and the surrounding areas are involved in, so we can invest our money in projects that will directly benefit them.

“Having witnessed first hand how this competition has positively impacted on the winners from previous years, we’re keen to launch the 2017 campaign.”
