Yorkshire caravan donate


A special needs school in the East Riding of Yorkshire is able to support its students equipping them with skills for life after the donation of a caravan to the school by Yorkshire Caravans of Bawtry.

Cambridge Park Academy in Grimsby was delighted to take receipt of a pre owned Swift Challenger Caravan from Yorkshire Caravans in Bawtry to help its 6th form special needs students just days after making a speculative phone call to the hugely popular Yorkshire based, family owned caravan company.

“We are absolutely overjoyed and this is truly special for the students at our school and will make a significant difference to the types of studies we can provide and the skills they can learn to support them in their everyday independent lives,” said Claire Abel Cambridge Park Academy. “We are most appreciative to the Yorkshire Caravan team and look forward to sharing our progress with them as the caravan begins to take shape.”

Independent fashion retailers will soon be able to offer customers instant, interest-free lines of credit with a smartphone-based app that makes in-store interest free credit transactions 40x faster than current offerings. Set to be launched in October, AppToPay has been developed by James Jones, owner of family-run, award-winning independent boutique Robinsons of Bawtry in Doncaster. The app allows small, medium-sized and independent retailers to offer shoppers the level of in-store finance usually reserved only for major retail chains. “At Robinsons of Bawtry, we have been looking for years for someone who could provide us with a store card,” Jones said. “They simply don’t exist for businesses of our size. The only options require at least 10,000 new issuances a year. For all but the biggest retailers, that’s totally unachievable.” He decided to create the app to allow retailers to offer their customers interest free lines of credit via their smartphone or tablet instead. Customers apply online and once approved download the app to their smartphone or tablet to use in their chosen retailer immediately.  On application, customers get a decision typically within minutes, a credit limit is established and
