Swallowfield staff raise more than £4,500

Staff at Swallowfield raise funds for CHSW

Staff at Wellington-based beauty manufacturer Swallowfield have raised £1,100 for Children’s Hospice South West.

They organised a grand Christmas raffle with more than 140 prizes and a donation from the company helped to make up the total.

Shift manager Jo Luckhurst said: “The Children’s Hospice is a charity which is close to our hearts. Over the past few years instead of sending Christmas cards to each other, we bought one big card for people to write on and give a donation. This year we decided to make it bigger and better by holding a raffle, too.

“We should all be so proud to be working for a company where everyone supports each other as a team to make these things happen and do it so well.”

This donation closes a very successful year of fundraising for Swallowfield and its staff, with a total of more than £4,500 raised for good causes.
