Fundraising Articles raises £530 for Willow Wood Hospice

Umbrella’s charity of the month was Willow Wood Hospice. Based in Ashton under Lyne, they provide free specialist palliative care for patients with life limiting illnesses.

Umbrella staff held an office bake sale, mini golf and raffle which raised £280. We’d like to thank Centralus, our pension and employee rewards scheme provider, for their generous donation of £250. Also we are really extremely grateful for the amazing raffle donations from local businesses including Holt Business Supplies, Manchester City, The Body Shop, Morrisons, Chariot Office Supplies, Cloud Accountant and Gallagher Joinery.
