HAR­LING­TON Hos­pice has been given a boost by one of its neigh­bours.

Data stor­age com­pany Rackspace, of Milling­ton Road, Hayes, re­cently held a char­ity lunch at its of­fices and gave the pro­ceeds to Har­ling­ton Hos­pice, sit­u­ated up the road in St Peter’s Way, Har­ling­ton.

Se­nior man­agers at the firm pre­pared, cooked and served lunch to col­leagues in ex­change for a do­na­tion.

The event raised £304 for the hos­pice and an equal amount for the Bri­tish Heart Foun­da­tion.

In an­other fundraiser on Wed­nes­day, Septem­ber 17, staff from the of­fices of GlaxoSmithKline, the phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal com­pany based in Stock­ley Park, will vol­un­tar­ily run the hos­pice’s shops in Ick­en­ham, Ruis­lip Manor and West Dray­ton.

They will com­pete to raise the most money through ‘their’ shop on the day and in­stall a win­dow dis­play in com­pe­ti­tion with their col­leagues.
