Company backs charity for year

A CONGRESBURY business has announced Weston Hospicecare as its charity of the year.

Cadbury Garden and Leisure will be raising money throughout 2011 for the vital organisation.

Paul Butchers, store manager, kickstarted the fund-raising campaign last week when he took part in the charity’s new event Boss in a Box.

He said: “I have always been a huge supporter of Weston Hospicecare and have taken part in many fund-raising events including the Mercury Mendip Challenge.

“It seemed a logical step to really get behind them together with my team here at Cadbury to try and raise as much money as we can.
