Charity gives thanks for cash
A HINCKLEY charity passed on its thanks for a generous Christmas donation from a mechanical services company in Coalville.
A Gift to Lift received £1,500 from J Powney Services, whose founder died of blood cancer this year.
The charity said on its Facebook page: “We are truly thankful for your kindness and our thoughts are with Diane and the family, especially over the festive period.”
A Gift To Lift provides gifts to support people of all ages battling blood cancer, and was created in 2014 by Alex Hopwood from Hinckley, after she was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia.
