£2,200 boost for Wigan and Leigh Hospice

24 August 2015

Over £2,200 has been raised by Marks and Spencer in Wigan for their charity of the year - Wigan and Leigh Hospice.

The store took part in a wide range of events and activities to raise the money, including a Onesie Walk, a Christmas raffle, bake sales and book sales as well as various in-store antics, such as an organ player and a staff exercise bike challenge.

The store donated £2,218 to the Hindley-based Hospice, which cares for people with life-limiting illnesses across Wigan and Leigh.

Lisa Uniacke, store manager, said: "We have had great time fundraising for the Hospice this year. All our staff have got involved and our customers have really done us proud so we would really like to thank them.Marks and Spencer donation
