Leek United Matches Donations

Leek United Building Society is coming to the rescue of East Cheshire Hospice by supporting its appeal for help.

The building society – a long-standing supporter of the Hospice – has launched a fundraising campaign among staff and members of the public.

It will match every pound donated up to a maximum donation of £30,000 and share proceeds among three charities, one of which is the Hospice.

Leek United, which has a branch on Chestergate, Macclesfield, is responding to the funding crisis caused by coronavirus.

Chief Executive Andrew Healy said: “As a mutual organisation, one of our core values is to give back to the communities we serve, especially during difficult times.

“These charities do an amazing job but they face a challenge at the present time because many of the fundraising events they rely on for income have been cancelled.

“We want to help and we hope members of the public will support our fundraising campaign so that these charities can continue to provide vital services.” Details from leekunited.co.uk.

Kate Bowmar, Corporate Fundraiser at East Cheshire Hospice, said: “We’re extremely grateful for the continued support of Leek United colleagues and members during these difficult financial times.

“Our amazing nurses are working tirelessly to ensure our In Patient Unit and Hospice @Home services remain fully operational, but due to the closure of our retail stores and cancelled fundraising events we’ve launched our Now More Than Ever Appeal to try and recover some of our lost income.”
