Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP -

A BUTCHER has raised more than £4,000 for the hospice from col­lec­tions in the shop.

A J Boons butch­ers in Chelford has pre­sented a cheque for the amount raised in their col­lec­tion box for East Cheshire Hospice, which needs thou­sands of pounds each day to care for pa­tients from Mac­cles­field and around the area.

The hospice has said how im­por­tant col­lec­tion boxes in shops and other or­gan­i­sa­tions are, rais­ing more than £20,000 a year.

Lisa Ball, fundrais­ing as­sis­tant, said: “We cur­rently have over 500 col­lec­tion boxes across East Cheshire in a va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions from hair­dressers, to butch­ers, to pubs and pet shops. Our col­lec­tion boxes can hold any­where be­tween £25 and £70.

“A J Boons Butch­ers started sup­port­ing East Cheshire Hospice in 2006 and are great supporters.

“Our col­lec­tion boxes are a really con­ve­nient way for mem­bers of our com­mu­nity to do­nate, and they are a great way to raise aware­ness for the hospice in your lo­cal area. Our aim is to place as many out in the com­mu­nity as pos­si­ble.”
