Southern Co-operative staff help raise children's hospice cash

PUBLISHED: 17:00 16 August 2018




Children's Hospice South West has been given hundreds of pounds thanks to a charity week held by Southern Co-operative.

Employees working in stores across Somerset and Bristol – including in Knightcott Road, Banwell – managed to raise £1,000 by hosting a range of activities.

Crazy hair days, static cycle rides, walking challenges and abseils were some of the ways staff raised the total.

Jessica Hughes, community investment manager at Southern Co-op, is grateful for the support of customers with its charitable work.

She said: “We have been blown away by this year’s activities and it is really special to know this money raised will make a tremendous impact on our local communities – be it a hospital, the environment or a school project.

“We would like to say a massive thank you to all of our customers and communities who got behind the fundraisers.

“With their help we will make a difference.”
