Mills team backs hospice
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.
