We are pleased to announce that we have raised £1,100 for Children’s Hospice South West. A donation from the company, coupled with the staff-organised grand Christmas raffle containing over 140 prizes 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 over £4,500 raised for good causes. Throughout the year employees held cakes sales, quiz nights and donned moustaches for Movember; raising money for charities such as Dementia UK, Bowel Cancer UK and St Margaret’s Hospice in the process.
CEO, Chris How said:
“We are always pleased to support our staff with fundraising ideas and are delighted to have raised so much this year.”
