Co-op Hands Over  £3,000 After Fundraising Bonanza image

Co-op colleagues from across Northern Scotland assembled at the Telford Street store in Inverness on Thursday 19 September to present Highland Hospice with a cheque for £3,182.70.

The cash had been raised by staff members from 18 stores around the region who had collectively hosted a weekend of fundraising earlier this year – choosing to get involved in a #wearyellowday to raise awareness of the hospice and also hosting raffles, cake sales and tombolas.

Highland Hospice, based at Ness House in Inverness, provides specialist palliative care to those living in the Highlands who have life limiting illnesses, along with support for families, loved ones and carers.

Co-op area manager, Daniel Simpson, said: “Highland Hospice is a cause close to many of our hearts and its work has an incredibly positive impact on the lives of so many people experiencing difficult times. I know that our store teams had a lot of fun carrying out their fundraising and we’d like to say a big thank you to our loyal customers who have supported us so enthusiastically.”

Corporate Fundraiser Lisa Long from Highland Hospice, said: “We are thrilled to accept this extremely generous donation from the Co-op – our organisation needs thousands of pounds every day just to support the delivery of services across the Highlands and these funds are essential in helping us to ensure that we are there for those who need us most. The kindness of Co-op colleagues and customers is hugely appreciated by everyone at the hospice who knows how hard you’ve worked to raise these funds especially for us.”
