Hales Home Care recently announced their long-term charity partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support and they’ve already been busy raising funds to reach their goal of £10,000 by August 2020.
By working closely with the charity, Hales Home Care entered senior management, nominated champions from all branches, and People Services in the Macmillan at Work programme to help staff support colleagues and their families facing a Cancer diagnosis. What’s more, the partnership also focuses their fundraising efforts in order to make the biggest impact.
Various fundraising activities have begun within Hales Home Care branches around the country. The first event they took part in, the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, raised a massive £1,301.09, with both service users and family members supporting Hales. And, that’s just the beginning!
Nicola Mewse, Hales Home Care Managing Director said, “With this first event proving so successful and many more exciting activities planned in the coming month, we are confident we will achieve our £10,000 target.”
Along with the coffee morning, Hales Home Care are also conducting a Rugby World Cup sweepstake, which has raised £75. And, they’ve also sent Harry Hales on his first holiday to Madeira, Portugal with the MD, which has so far raised £40.
Who is Harry Hales? As part of Hales Home Care’s drive to raise funds for Macmillan, they have enlisted the help from a rather cute little teddy bear. To help Hales towards reaching their goal of £10,000 by 2020, they have launched the “Harry Hales around the world” campaign.
Harry is keen to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support and is on the lookout for travellers and holiday goers to take him away with them in exchange for a donation.
Harry is currently sunning himself in the Dominican Republic helping Tracy Jenkins, Payroll Manager, celebrate a significant birthday.
