House buy­ers do­nate to help town’s hos­pice

Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP -

EAST Cheshire Hos­pice is to ben­e­fit from a new fundrais­ing ven­ture set up by Leek United Build­ing So­ci­ety.

The ‘Feel­good Mort­gage’ means that when cus­tomers ap­ply for a mort­gage they make a £50 do­na­tion to one of four hos­pices, in­clud­ing East Cheshire Hos­pice.

The other char­i­ta­ble or­gan­i­sa­tions to ben­e­fit un­der the ‘Feel­good’ scheme in­clude: Treetops Hos­pice (Der­byshire); Sev­ern Hos­pice (Shrop­shire) and the Donna Louise Chil­dren’s Hos­pice (Stafford­shire).

Camilla Crockett, cor­po­rate fundrais­ing of­fi­cer at the East Cheshire Hos­pice, said: “We’d like to say a big ‘thank you’ to Leek United for all its con­tin­u­ing sup­port, and it’s great that the so­ci­ety has cho­sen us to be part of this new char­i­ta­ble ini­tia­tive.

“Our com­mu­nity re­ally sup­ports us and loves to see lo­cal busi­nesses be­com­ing in­volved in the work that we do, so this is re­ally im­por­tant to the hos­pice.”

Clare Beard­more, Leek United’s mar­ket­ing and prod­ucts man­ager, said: “Not only will our ‘Feel­good Mort­gage’ help peo­ple in the com­mu­ni­ties we serve to buy a home – it will also pro­vide much-needed sup­port for four amaz­ing char­i­ties in those com­mu­ni­ties.

“We chose the hos­pices be­cause their won­der­ful work touches so many lives across the four coun­ties.”
