Aldi make donation in memory

Kelly Stokes, who works in the Recruitment, Training and HR Academy for Aldi, nominated the Hospice to receive a Community Grant from the discount supermarket because the Hospice cared for her mum.

She said: "As part of a community charity nomination initiative many of my colleagues supported me in the nomination for the Hospice, knowing that this was something that meant a lot to me.
"The Hospice looked after my mum Denise Winstanley and my family and, I have never forgotten the support they gave us all. It is such a special place and I'm delighted that I've been able to bring my colleagues to the Hospice so that they can learn more about it, and that we've been able to make this donation."

The donation will be made to the Counting on Care appeal which aims to raise £50,000 towards the modernisation of the Inpatient Unit.

Maxine Armstrong, Fundraising and Lottery Manager, said: "On behalf of the Hospice I would like to thank the team at Aldi for their kind donation and particularly Kelly for nominating the Hospice. These funds will go directly towards our appeal which aims to make the Inpatient Unit a much more comfortable and welcoming place for all of our patients and visitors."
