Foodie fundraising with a tasty £2806 donation!

31st January 2023

We would like to say a big THANK YOU to our customers and suppliers for helping us raise over £2806 for Hospice at Home Carlisle and North Lakeland

Our Grand Christmas Raffle raised a whopping £1220 and the additional moneys came from our charity Christmas puddings, 50p was donated for each pudding we sold, and from till point collection tins throughout the year.

Hospice at Home Carlisle and North Lakeland means so much to us at Cranstons and we are always blown away by the generosity of our suppliers and customers when we fundraise for this wonderful charity.

Elizabeth Leeming, President of Hospice at home, Carlisle and North Lakeland ‘’ On behalf of all at Hospice at Home Carlisle & North Lakeland, I would like say a very big thank you to Cranstons and to all their suppliers and customers for their commitment to the Charity. The sums raised from the festive fundraising activity 2022 are fantastic! The generosity of all concerned is particularly appreciated in these uncertain times’’

‘’In this, the Charity’s 25th anniversary year, I would also like to pay tribute to the loyalty shown by all at Cranstons over the years.   In the Charity’s earliest days, the late Mrs Bunty Cranston was a dedicated supporter.  The ongoing support provided by the Cranston family and all in ‘Team Cranston’ is highly valued. It makes a significant difference to the Charity’s ability to provide the palliative care services that are so needed when someone in a local family is facing a life-limiting illness’’

We look forward to seeing what challenges 2023 brings to Team Cranstons and Hospice at Home!

Without the generosity of our suppliers and business contacts, the Grand Christmas Raffle would not be made possible.
