Over £15,000 raised by Klarius for Staffordshire Hospice

Published:  28 January, 2021

The Klarius Group of Companies raised over £15,491 in support of Douglas Macmillan Hospice, a.k.a Dougie Mac in 2020.

The funds will help the hospice to continue to provide specialised care to support people with life-limiting illnesses in Stoke-on-Trent, North Staffordshire and the surrounding area.

Commenting on the effort, Klarius CEO Mark Brickhill said: “We have undertaken a number of fund-raising initiatives throughout 2020 in support of Dougie Mac, so I am overjoyed that we have reached this level of donations. I would like to personally thank everyone who has donated and helped champion this most worthy of causes.”

Before lockdown, employees from Klarius Products, Emissco, AutoLogistiks and KM Tools took part in a sponsored exercise bike ride to Wembley, with staff from a number of departments taking turns to complete the full distance. Over-shooting the target of 143 miles, the team ended up doing 443 miles, effectively completing a return trip to Cheadle.

Klarius also sold Dougie Mac raffle tickets and scratch cards when possible, while signing up to the charity’s weekly lottery and taking part in its Christmas Jumper day. Along with the fundraising, employees provided a large amount of clothes and goods to be sold in the Dougie Mac charity stores.

Donna Adams, Head of Fundraising and Lottery at Dougie Mac, added: “We can’t thank the fantastic Klarius team enough for their support during 2020. In what has been an incredibly challenging year for everyone, Klarius has continued to go above and beyond to help raise funds for Dougie Mac and support their local community.”

Meanwhile, until October 2021 any Emissco hand sanitiser dispenser or hand sanitiser purchase is eligible for a 5% donation to Dougie Mac. Quote DougieMac5 when purchasing via the https://emissco.co.uk/shop/
