Last Friday on the 5th July, Click Dealer’s team of ladies took on a 7.5-mile moonlit trek around Stoke-on-Trent, to raise money for Douglas Macmillan Hospice.
We’re very proud to announce that they not only completed the route and picked up their well-deserved medals. They managed to raise a fantastic £610 for the charity! If you haven’t donated but would still like to, you can click here.
Douglas Macmillan Hospice commended all the walkers for their support on Facebook:
“To all #DougieMac Moonlight Walkers, a HUGE thank you for your amazing support and for doing so well in tonight’s event. It really was a night to remember.
If it wasn’t for you superstars, we would not be able to provide care to over 3,500 patients and their loved ones a year both at the hospice and in the community.
Before you head home to bed, give yourselves a high five – you’re the bees knees!”
For A Good Cause
As a heart-warming display of support and solidarity, our team of Clicker’s rallied behind one of their own and arranged to take part in the women-only event. Customer Support Executive at Click, Charlotte Barber, sadly lost her Dad to cancer this year. To commend the unrivalled care and attention that Douglas Macmillan Hospice provided her Dad and countless others, we’re tremendously proud they have raised such a great sum of money.
The Dougie Mac Hospice provides free hospice care to over 3,000 patients with life-limiting illnesses every year in the North Staffordshire area, also giving supportive care to their families and carers. They help people living with cancer and non-cancer life-limiting illnesses such as advanced heart failure, motor neurone disease and incurable lung diseases.
The hospice relies purely on donations from the public and doesn’t receive any government funding (other than GiftAid) making the work of most staff and volunteers heavily reliant on the support of the local community and charity raffles and events such as this one.
Charlotte will be supporting Dougie Mac once again in the near future as she and her sisters take on the 3 peak challenge on the 17th August. You can donate to this cause by clicking here and help Charlotte reach her £1000 goal! Incredibly she’s already almost three-quarters of the way there!
Good luck to Charlotte and well done to our Clicker Ladies once again!
