Copyprint Services of Bolton are the latest local firm to join the Bolton Hospice 'Play As You Earn' scheme.
The scheme sponsored by another local business 'thebestof bolton', gives employees the chance to support the charity directly from their wages on a weekly or monthly basis whilst also having the opportunity to win prizes upto Â£1000 in their weekly lottery draw.
A real WIN-WIN situation for all.
Bolton's Hospice Lottery, in it's 10th anniversary year, wants to celebrate by signing up 10 new businesses to the Play As You Earn Scheme over the coming year and has also set a target of 250 new members signing up to the weekly lottery draw during September.
Anyone committing to at least 13 weeks of the weekly lottery during September will be entered into a prize draw to win a fantastic Sainsburys Trolley Dash.
Copyprint Services are the latest in a long list of local businesses, which includes Watsons Steel, Indespension, BMBC, Park Cakes, GN Systems, Georgia-Pacific, Warings, Leigh's Paints, Carrs Pasties & Batleys Pet Foods, whose employees have agreed to donate Â£1 per week to support our fantastic local hospice.
John Hynes, Managing Director of Copyprint Services said "even though we are only a small team of seven we want to do our bit by helping Bolton Hospice and what could be easier than donating straight from our wages".
It costs around Â£3.6 million per year to run the hospice which has 14 in-patient beds and provides extensive day care facilities to many local people. Around Â£1 million is provided by the Government via NHS Bolton and the balance has to be rasied through various fund raising events including the Hospice Lottery.
Any company wishing to get involved should contact Steve Holt, Lottery Manager, on 01204 663077 or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or Alice Edmond, Fundraising Manager, on 01204 663062or e-mail: email@example.com.
