Crossroads Care Ribble Valley is launching a new scheme asking companies to make regular donations to support its work.
The money would help to support crisis care situations, activities for children with disabilities and end-of-life hospice care in people’s own homes, all provided by Crossroads Care.
Derek Jones, who was born in Clitheroe, has been quick off the mark in making his business, Heritage Kitchen Range of Preserves, the first member of the new fund-raising scheme.
He’s hoping to raise in excess of £500 this year through giving a percentage of his sales profits to Crossroads Care Ribble Valley.
“It’s great to get on board and support Crossroads in helping people across the Ribble Valley,” said Derek.
“ I know the money that my business contributes will make a real difference to the vital work that Crossroads does throughout the district.”
In asking for regular donations, the Caring Companies Scheme will offer businesses the chance to take part in regular monthly fund-raisers. This will include specialist networking events, social activities, quizzes, games and raffles.
With public sector cuts really starting to affect local people any contribution that businesses can make to the new scheme will be greatly appreciated.
