Four Booths stores have raised a whopping £4000 for St John’s Hospice. These funds have been raised by the tax levied on their charge for carrier bags. Staff within each store were able to choose 3 local worthy causes to share the funds with and St John’s were lucky enough to be nominated by four separate Booths stores – Kendal, Kirkby Lonsdale, Carnforth & Scotforth! Booths as a business have 28 stores, each donating £3000 to worthy causes – that’s a very generous £84,000 across all stores.
Jo Humphrey, Fundraising Manager said “we were so excited to receive such a fantastic donation from these Booths stores – we are touched that the staff have chosen St John’s as one of their beneficiaries. This money will go directly to helping patients and their families in North Lancashire & South Lakes area when they need it most.“
Jonathan Metcalfe, Trading Manager at Booths Kendal added “St John’s was a popular choice amongst the colleagues in store as it was deemed a very worthy local cause, with many staff knowing of someone who had been touched by the care at St John’s. We were more than happy to make this donation.”
