Greggs bring fundraising treat to the Hospice

Thank you to everyone at Greggs at Balliol Business Park for your fantastic fundraising efforts throughout 2015. 

Operations Manager Ian Blackwood, and Administrator Lynn Thompson from Greggs visited the Hospice today, bringing with them their amazing donation of £920.75.

Lynn tells us:

Each year we support two charities, and in 2015 we had a site vote with staff choosing to support St Oswald's for one. We always like to fundraise for local charities and St Oswald's is well known in the community, so we are more than happy to help your cause. 


We fundraised in a number of different ways throughout all of last year such as a tuck shop, coffee mornings, a car wash, an auction of charity car parking spaces, raffles and a pay to come to work day (which actually went down really well!). All of our fundraising activites and events that we did meant that everyone on site could get involved, so it was a real team effort. 

The team at Greggs Balliol Business Park also donated a bag of quality used childrens toys to be sold in our charity shops and a bespoke chess set for our patients to enjoy.
