Care home staff pack shopping for children’s cancer charity
GENEROUS shoppers have donated hundreds of pounds to children’s cancer charity CLIC Sargent after care home workers helped pack their bags.
Staff from several Huddersfield care homes spent their day off helping at the checkouts at Morrisons, on Penistone Road.
In just four hours packing customers’ shopping, they raised a total of £324.27 for CLIC Sargent, which provides financial and specialist support for young people and their families affected by cancer.
The team from Aden Court, Aden House, Aden Lodge, Aden Mount and Aden View care homes, all operated by the Hill Care Group, are now aiming to repeat the fundraising activity.
They plan on spending a full day at the supermarket to raise £1,000 for the charity.
Liz Daykin, customer relations manager for the Hill Care Group, said: “CLIC Sargent provides a vital service to young people affected by cancer and we wanted to do our bit to support their work.
“A massive thank you to Morrisons for hosting us and the generous customers who donated to such a worthy cause.
“We are now planning on repeating the charity bag pack but with a much bigger goal of raising £1,000. Any and all support is greatly appreciated.”
