THE need for funds still con­tin­ues, and Wil­low Wood has a very full diary of fundrais­ing events and cam­paigns through­out the year.

These range from af­ter­noon teas to ● sky­div­ing, the Bub­ble Rush to the But­ter­fly Re­lease and many oth­ers along the way.

One easy way to sup­port the work of the hos­pice is to have a loose change box at home, or one of our char­ity col­lect­ing cans at work.

Last month the Trea­sury re­leased the amaz­ing statis­tic that 60 per cent of all cop­per coins (the one and two pence pieces) are only used in one trans­ac­tion be­fore leav­ing the cash cy­cle.

As­ton­ish­ingly, it is be­lieved that 8pc of cop­pers are thrown in the bin!

Wil­low Wood could make good use of these coins, and we’d be very grate­ful if your busi­ness could place a col­lect­ing can on your counter, for cus­tomers to pop their change in.

Con­tact Rachel on 0161 330 7788 or rachel.kel­ley@ wil­low­wood.info and she’ll get one to you.

A vol­un­teer will then col­lect and re­ceipt the do­na­tions at reg­u­lar in­ter­vals.

If you’d rather have one at home, Rachel can organise a card­board loose change box for your dress­ing ta­ble or side­board. We’d be very grate­ful for this sup­port.
