Mirfiel based bedding specialist John Cotton has carried out its third staff prize draw of the year, continuing to mark 100 years in business.

First prize went to Christopher Walker, from the nonwovens division, who took home £1,000 worth of White Rose vouchers, while Alfredo Rodrigues from home textiles and David Royal-Evatt from nonwovens division won £500 and £250 worth of White Rose vouchers respectively.

So far this year the John Cotton Group has raised in excess of £88,500 for charity.

John Cotton, company chairman, said: “The lifespan of companies is getting shorter, so it’s a massive achievement to have made it to 100 years, and we wouldn’t have been able to without the hard work of our employees.”
