As Jack explains: “I asked the staff to wear a red or white item of clothing that can clearly be seen for a minimum donation £1. If they wished to wear full non-uniform the minimum donation would be £5. I put up some posters explaining what we are fundraising for so the customers would also be aware on the day.
“This fundraiser is in support of my Dad, and also many other men, women and children who are currently fighting Leukaemia. Julie and I have worked on several activities to raise funds for charities this year and we really appreciate the staff support.”
Staff at Greenhous VW Van Centre were seen to be scoffing sausage and bacon baps for a pound each. Meanwhile at Featherbed Lane the staff from Volvo, Renault and Nissan contributed to the fund some dressed in fetching cure leukaemia t-shirts and others in their own clothes.
Jack and Julie are delighted that whatever sum is raised it will go to a worthwhile cause. Jack’s efforts are part of a £25,000 target set in April which has seen his father Neil’s company getting fully behind the fund-raising as well as personal and family quests to raise funds.
