Wilkinsons in goods giveaway to Kenton charity
Hospice will use donation to boost funds
A WORTHY charity has been given a financial boost by a generous donation from a high-street store.
St Luke’s Hospice in Kenton Grange, Kenton, has been given an array of products from Wilkinsons which they can use for fundraising events to swell their deserving coffers.
The charity cares for terminally ill people in Brent and Harrow and relies on the generosity of the community for 75 per cent of their funding.
The gifts from the new store in St George’s Shopping Centre in Harrow can be used for raffle prizes and goody bags for ladies taking part in the charity’s annual Midnight Walk on June 17.
Pam Russell, director of fundraising at St Luke’s Hospice, said: “Our work at the hospice can only continue with the support of the people, companies and organisations that give their time and money to fundraise on our behalf.
“Therefore we are so grateful to Wilkinsons for the kind donation.”
