Leading specialist lender Together donated over 250 chocolate eggs to two local charities ahead of the Easter bank holiday weekend after running a colleague collection.
The 258 Easter eggs were collected in just one week at the company’s Cheadle headquarters, as part of the lender’s ‘Let’s get caring’ initiative to give back to the local community.
The collection was held in aid of two local charities of St. Ann’s Hospice and Francis House Children’s Hospice. St. Ann’s Hospice will be used its donated eggs in its fundraising Easter egg hunt at Wythenshawe Park, whilst Francis House Children’s Hospice will be giving its treats to the children and families that use its services.
Kevin Fisher, HR director at Together, said, “Our colleagues have really got behind our Easter egg collection and we’re delighted with the number of donations to support these two great causes.
“We also pledged to donate £2 for every egg received, so we have also raised £516, which will be shared between the two charities.”
