We’ve raised over £2364 for Hospice at Home !

26th January 2022

We would like to say a big THANK YOU to our customers and suppliers for helping us raise over £2364.75 for Hospice at Home Carlisle and North Lakeland over the 2021 festive period.


Our Grand Christmas Raffle raised a whopping £2364.75 and the additional monies came from our charity Christmas puddings, 50p was donated for each pudding we sold, and from collection tins at our tills.

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.

Helen Robinson, Community Engagement Coordinator for the charity said, “We are delighted by this wonderful donation from the Cranstons’ teams and their customers and have been thrilled to partner with them again, particularly throughout the festive period.  We can’t thank them enough for the support they have shown Hospice at Home by selling raffle tickets, collecting donations and selling Christmas puddings.  This is a fantastic amount to have raised and will make such a huge difference to our patients, their families and carers in our local community.  Our registered nurses will be able to give 20 nights of support to a patient in their home thanks to Cranstons’ incredible generosity.”

We look forward to seeing what challenges 2022 brings to Team Cranstons and Hospice at Home!
