As part of the Manch­ester Com­bined Branch of the Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Work­ers Union, the re­tired mem­bers sec­tion se­lects five char­i­ties each year to re­ceive an equal share of £500.

Lau­rence said “Var­i­ous good causes are nom­i­nated and de­cided upon at the re­tired mem­bers sec­tion an­nual meet­ing and I was de­lighted to be asked to rep­re­sent my col­leagues at Wil­low Wood.

“The hospice is a tremen­dous fa­cil­ity and does such great work in the com­mu­nity and I’m de­lighted we are able to help.”
