On Saturday 13 February members of our Charity of the Year Fundraising team spent the morning bag packing at Tesco Rosehill in Carlisle to help raise funds for our two amazing nominated charities.
Armed with our charity buckets and putting our best bag packing skills into practice, we manned the tills offering the Saturday morning shoppers help packing their bags. We were even joined by our fantastic littler helper Josh who gave up the first morning of his half term holidays to help his Dad Steve Balmer, Independent Financial Adviser and Managing Director of David Allen Financial Services.
It was a lovely morning and we were completely overwhelmed by the generosity of those who donated. Everyone was so kind and it was clear to see that our two wonderful Charities of the Year, Eden Valley Hospice and Hospice at Home Carlisle and North Lakeland, are close to the hearts of not just our team, but so many people in our local area.
We are delighted to announce that during the morning we were able to raise an incredible £620 which will go straight into our Charity of the Year fundraising pot, taking us one step closer to our target of £10,000.
