M&S Doncaster Spend It Well
We are delighted to announce that M&S Doncaster has chosen Weston Park Cancer Charity as their local Charity of the Year.
We thank staff members for their support and M&S for shortlisting us – without your generosity, we would find it impossible to continue to create a better life for the thousands of patients and their families living with, and beyond, cancer across our region.
“We are so proud here in Marks and Spencer Doncaster to be working in partnership with Weston Park Cancer Charity, our new charity of the year voted for by our colleagues. ” Says Veronica Wright, Section Coordinator at Marks and Spencer Doncaster.
“We are all very passionate and are delighted to work with Weston Park Cancer Charity. We are engaged, determined and dedicated to raise as much money as we can in the coming year, as it is a cause that is so close to many of our hearts.
“By working together, we have already raised £870, which is fabulous start. Weston Park Cancer Charity does a fantastic and very important job supporting people fighting cancer in our local communities and all our team want to support this very worthy cause, to help them continue with the great work that they do.”
A huge thank you must also go to Doncaster Chamber, who helped us launch our partnership by fundraising and bag packing in-store, raising over £800 in the process.
“Starting from 2018, we have been allocated two days per year to volunteer for Chamber member charities.
“A vote was put out to our team and we then split into two groups and have taken it in turns to volunteer for the four charities who received the most votes.
“We really enjoyed helping the customers in-store and talking to them face to face. They were quite open in sharing their positive experiences of Weston Park and we know that we are raising money for an amazing charity.”
Thank you M&S Doncaster and Doncaster Chamber for everything you’re doing to help us in our mission.
