Staff at a WGC-based hospice have donated £10 to their employer – with a new campaign set to double the cash.
Now bosses at the Isabel Hospice have called on donors to follow their lead.
You can donate £10 to the Isabel Hospice through the Localgiving.com website, and it will become £20 plus Gift Aid through the Grow Your Tenner campaign.
Localgiving.com has been given £500,000 by the Office for Civil Society to distribute to the charities and voluntary groups.
Each charity can receive a maximum of £1,000 in match funding.
Registration opens today (Monday) and you can donate from 10am tomorrow.
You need to register as a supporter before you can donate by going to www.localgiving.com, then click on ‘sign up’ link.
The campaign will open from 10am tomorrow, Tuesday.
Go to www.localgiving.com/isabelhospice to make your donation.
Lisa Seccombe, director of fundraising and public relations, said: “What better way to make £10 work for a great local charity.
“That sum could almost pay for an hour’s nursing at our In-Patient Unit.
“Our fundraising team were delighted to give their own money to encourage others to do the same.”
