Mills team backs hospice

Accrington Observer - - YOUR VIEWS -

A POP­U­LAR shop­ping des­ti­na­tion has pledged its sup­port to East Lan­cashire Hospice.

Oswaldtwistle Mills hopes to raise at least £10,000 for the char­ity af­ter se­lect­ing them as their char­ity of the year.

Last year the com­pany sup­ported the British Heart Foun­da­tion and Ron­ald Mac­Don­ald House – split­ting the £10,000 raised be­tween the two char­i­ties.

A two-day dis­count sale kick started the col­lec­tion for the hospice, which pro­vides care for peo­ple with life-lim­it­ing ill­nesses.

Gifts were do­nated from dif­fer­ent de­part­ments within the for­mer weav­ing mill, and vouch­ers raf­fled off for the store.

In ad­di­tion to col­lec­tion buck­ets, raf­fles and loy­alty days, Oswaldtwistle Mills plans to do­nate a per­cent­age of ticket sales from this year’s Santa’s Grotto to the hospice.

The venue will soon be launch­ing the chance to win a Christ­mas din­ner for 6-8 peo­ple for the price of a £5 raf­fle ticket.

The de­tails will be an­nounced on their Face­book page soon.

The team have al­ready pledged to en­ter the East Lan­cashire Hospice 10K in Jan­uary, as well as do the hospice pub walk, and take part in a spon­sored hike for the char­ity.
