KIND hearted staff at Coral have raised more than £1,000 for cancer charity Sue Ryder by auctioning off a dolls' house for the worthy cause.

Pauline McGuire, manager of the charity shop in Heathway, Dagenham, generously donated the beautiful dolls' house from stockists Hickleton Collectors.

The shop carries doll's houses as one of its most popular items and Coral employee James Knight won it for his 20-month old daughter, Eva Rose.

Maria Vitney and Jason Saywell, from Coral's Barking head office, raffled that and other donated gifts, collecting a total of £1,205.

Last week they popped into the shop to present a cheque to Pauline.

Coral has pledged to sponsor the charity until it raises £1 million nationwide.
