Milk workers raise over £300 for hospice

Factory workers took time out to enjoy a slice of cake while supporting their local hospice. 
Donation from Dairy Crest following cake sale and xmas cards
Dairy Crest held a cake sale at its factory in Chadwell Heath and raised £88 for Saint Francis Hospice.     

The money was combined with funds collected earlier this year, which were then matched by the caring milk company to make a fantastic £362.     

"A lot of people who work at Dairy Crest are local to the area and they have experience with Saint Francis Hospice," said Elizabeth Ayers, a technical administrator with Dairy Crest.      
"We are very happy that the money goes to such a good cause.     

"We decided to do a cake sale and lots of the staff made cakes. We were delighted as we went above and beyond our £60 target."     

Elizabeth, who presented the bumper cheque to Lynda Head, Corporate Executive at the hospice, also said the company has been supporting the hospice for several years and so far have raised more than £2,383.      

"We are truly grateful to all the staff at Dairy Crest for yet another generous donation of £362," said Lynda.    

"Our special thanks goes to Elizabeth for yet again organising the day and to all the staff and management at the Dairy Crest factory for their continued interest and support in our vital work. "
