Bagpuss badges for Asthma UK

The Ripon branch of Leeds Building Society is supporting Asthma UK by selling pin badges of the children’s television character Bagpuss.

The branch, at 17 Market Place North, is offering the Bagpuss pin badges for a suggested donation of £1 until Friday, August 31. Branch manager Maxine Walton said: “This campaign provides a great opportunity to raise awareness of this very common condition.”
