Bedding specialist John Cotton Group, based in Mirfield, will be celebrating 100 years in business with a host of fundraising activities and events.

John Cotton, company chairman, said: “In a world where the average lifespan of a company is just 15 years, it’s a huge achievement to be celebrating this milestone.

“We wouldn’t have made it to 100 years without the hard work and dedication of each of our employees.

“We’ll be holding a number of prize draws for employees throughout 2016 where all employees will have the chance to win £1,000, £500 or £250.

The Yorkshire Cancer Centre, Kirkwood Hospice, Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice and Yorkshire Air Ambulance will all get a share of an ambitious £100,000 fundraising target.
