Sam Shaw Runs New York Marathon for Principle Trust Charity

Director of Skipton-based Estate Agents Harrison Boothman, Sam Shaw is running the New York Marathon (26.2 miles) on Sunday 5th November.

“I’m aiming to raise £1,000 for Skipton-based children’s charity, The Principle Trust, who provide free week-long respite holidays to children who are underprivileged, disadvantaged, disabled, have life-limiting conditions, or who have experienced poverty, trauma or abuse.”

This isn’t the first time Harrison Boothman have supported the local children’s charity, in May this year Sales Valuers Jacob and Austen ran the Leeds Half Marathon and raised an amazing £1,000, which supported two families each with a life-changing holiday.

The Trust’s 100% donations policy ensures every penny raised from events and marketing directly benefits the children and their families.

Anyone wishing to make a donation can visit Sam’s fundraising page using the link below:

“This is the first time I have attempted such an event, running over 26 miles through all five New York City Boroughs to reach the finish line in Central Park. It is the largest marathon in the world and I will be supported by my wife, Penny and my two daughters, Ashley and Alice.”

Please wish me luck!

All donations very much appreciated.

Thank you for your kindness.”

Coming Soon…… Hawks View, Shires Lane, Embsay

Coming Soon! – Further plans and information now available on request.


‘Hawks View’

Shires Lane, Embsay, Skipton

Construction of this eagerly anticipated, brand new rural village development by the Multi Award-Winning local construction company, R. N. Wooler & Co. Ltd. is now well underway with completion of the first phase estimated to be before the end of 2022.


Offering an excellent variety of sophisticated two, three, four and five bedroom contemporary homes; all properties on this imaginatively designed development will be constructed to an unrivalled new build standard throughout incorporating handsome exterior stonework, in-house craftsman joinery, bespoke interior customer options and first-class fixtures and fittings.



Each home will benefit from a modern, sustainable design incorporating a remarkably high level of thermal insulation together with solar PV panels ensuring reduced ongoing energy requirements and associated running costs whilst also minimising any environmental impact.


In complete contrast to the many typical ‘high-density’ modern developments, the new homes at Hawks View, Embsay are intended to exceed the expectations of even the most discerning purchaser, having been thoughtfully designed in collaboration with  ‘Rural Solutions Ltd’,  the UK’s Leading Rural Diversification Development Experts, placing a huge emphasis on creating generous, well-orientated and carefully spaced-out plots surrounded by extensive open green space.

Being ideally situated only circa two miles from the historic market town of Skipton and adjacent to the sports fields on the edge of this charming Craven village, a great deal of care and skill has been taken to ensure that the overall scheme sensitively integrates into this peaceful semi-rural village setting; being surrounded by beautiful open fields, countryside and farmland on the southern boundary of the scenic Yorkshire Dales National Park.


The highly sought-after village of Embsay benefits from a vibrant and extremely active local community, offering excellent options for both primary and secondary schooling together with a range of other everyday amenities including two traditional ‘local’ pubs, a lively village hall, a well-used general store/post office and a wonderful heritage steam railway line connecting the village to Bolton Abbey.
