East-Midlands family company, Birds Bakery have announced that we are one of their chosen charities for the coming year. They kicked off their support by presenting us with a generous £3,000 cheque.
The money has been raised from plastic bag sales across the sixty-two branches of Birds Bakeries
. It was presented by Chief Operating Officer, Lesley Bird and Sales, and Marketing Director, Mike Holling, during a tour of the hospice.
First company to sign up to ‘Sponsor One Week of Nursing Care
Birds are the first company to sign up to our ‘Sponsor One Week of Nursing Care’ initiative. The Bakery is hoping to raise over £14,000 during the coming year, through staff fundraising, plastic bag tariffs and cake sales. This will sponsor two weeks of end of life nursing care
for local patients in their own homes.
“Birds Bakery is very pleased to be a fundraising partner for Treetops as over many years the hospice will have cared for our colleagues, their families, and our customers. Their Sponsor One Week of Nursing Care scheme shows the impact of our CSR activities in a tangible way.”
Mike Holling, Marketing Director, Birds Bakeries
Alongside bag sales, throughout April, Birds
customers could purchase specially designed Treetops cupcakes complete with a chocolate tree topper!
