Compassionate work colleagues help make a difference

Leamington Editorial 11th Jan, 2019   0

WORK colleagues went head to head to help make a difference to families affected by terminal illness.

Volunteers from Midcounties Co-operative in Leamington and Warwick, competed to increase the takings of two charity shops in the Myton Hospices Charity Shop Challenge.

The Warwick store team won, raising nearly £1,100, with both teams helping to raise some £1,670in total.

The volunteers worked with shop staff to drive sales including creating window displays and asking friends and family to donate items.

The money raised will help Myton Hospices continue providing care for people with terminal illnesses and support for their families.

Hospice spokeswoman Hannah Morris said: “The Co-op Energy team threw themselves into this one with real enthusiasm, which was lovely to see. The shops look amazing and we saw plenty of new customers coming through the door.

“We had a lot of fun working with the Co-op Energy team, and their efforts will go a long way to helping us provide care for those living with terminal illnesses in the area.”
