Keenans Estate Agents generously sponsor the cost of producing 10,000 penny pinching boxes, saving the Hospice a sizeable £1,650.
Keenans Estate Agents are always keen to support the local community they serve. Earlier this year Area Manager of the company, Anneka Vines, who lives in Rossendale, got in touch with Rossendale Hospice and asked how Keenans could help and get involved.
Following a visit to the Hospice, thirteen members of the company took part in the Firewalk challenge in March raising £851.80 and have since generously offered to sponsor the cost of producing 10,000 penny pinching boxes, saving the Hospice a sizeable £1,650. Their support has earned them recognition as a gold ‘Corporate Partner’.
Fundraising and Marketing Manager, Alison Whittaker-Stewart says “it was so great to be approached by Keenans Estate Agents. There are many ways companies can support the Hospice. Keenans have a box in their Bank Street office and wanted to support our penny pinching appeal and the Inter-Schools Penny Pinching Challenge which takes place annually in September, initiatives which raised £18,900 last year. We are very grateful to Keenans for helping us to help people in our community living with a life-limiting condition.”
If you would like to collect and donate your loose change to Rossendale Hospice, you can pick up a box from any of the Hospice charity shops, Keenans Estate Agents, most supermarkets and many other shops in the community.
