HEN they retire many former BT employees choose to remain part of their union as “retired members”.
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.
John Fellowes, head of fundraising for the Ashton-under-Lyne hospice, said: “This year, along with four other charities, Willow Wood was nominated as one of the charities and we were delighted to welcome member Laurence Moore who presented us with their donation”.
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.”
