Gen­er­ous staff give wages to Demelza

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

Staff at Ash­ford’s County Square shop­ping cen­tre have raised £6,000 for a chil­dren’s hospice by gift­ing a shift.

All 15 mem­bers of the cen­tre’s cus­tomer ser­vice team do­nated a min­i­mum of one day’s pay to Demelza Hospice Care for Chil­dren, based in Sit­ting­bourne.

Some col­leagues even do­nated three day’s wages.

This re­sulted in a do­na­tion of £6,000.

The cheque was pre­sented to Donna Wells, from Demelza, by Tony Butcher, the cen­tre’s cus­tomer ser­vice’s man­ager and his team last week.

Mrs Wells said: “It was amaz­ingly gen­er­ous of the County Square team to gift a shift to us, es­pe­cially at Christ­mas when there is so much de­mand on ev­ery­one’s pay packet.

“Their sup­port will help us pro­vide es­sen­tial care to life­lim­ited and life-threat­ened ba­bies, chil­dren and young peo­ple through­out Kent and cre­ate pre­cious mem­o­ries for their fam­i­lies.”
