Here at R. Greaves & Co, fundraising for charity is a very important part of our mission.
We actively support Hope House Childrens Hospice which is an amazing charity, providing specialist nursing care and support to life-limited children, young people and young adults.
Their support extends to the whole family, from diagnosis and throughout the lifetime of the child and beyond.
Macmillan Coffee Morning 2015
We joined in with the world's biggest coffee morning on September 25th 2015. The generous cake donations were incredible, we sold raffle tickets, played "spot the cake" and had a steady stream of people coming in to support this wonderful cause from 9am till 3pm.
The donations collected on that day amounted to an amazing £320.00.
The cakes that were left over were donated to a coffee morning that was being held the next day at the local Crematorium.
Christmas Memory Tree 2015
Throughout December we had a memory tree in the office for families to write their loved ones names on a wooden heart and place it on the tree in remembrance of the loved ones they had lost.
A donation of £2 per name was taken and the money raised was for Hope House Childrens Hospice.
We set up a just giving page and the total collected with the online donations was an incredible £260.00

A good friend of mine also had a starring role on the day as she braved the shave!
