We’ve mentioned previously that we are taking part in this year’s Corporate Challenge organised by Pendleside Hospice, and we are kicking off our fund raising efforts with a clothes collection and a tuck shop in our local offices.
Our Managing Director Mark Wiggan said “The Corporate Challenge is a great way to get local businesses involved and we were keen to play our part.
We have a few things planned over the next four months but the clothes collection and tuck shop is going to be a constant throughout. We have many candidates calling into our offices in Burnley and Blackburn throughout the day and offering soft drinks and a few snacks in exchange for a donation seemed like a good thing to do.”
We are also offering clothes collection bags. You can pick up a bag at one of their branches, fill it with your unwanted clothes and drop it a hospice shop.
Christina Cope, from Pendleside Hospice, added: “We’re really grateful to have so many prominent local businesses like M65Jobsearch taking part in the challenge this year and there are some excellent fund raising ideas. Donations play such a major part in keeping the hospice going and allowing us to continue the important work the hospice does in helping people living with life-limiting illnesses”.
