COMMUNITY: KLARIUS RAISES OVER £15k FOR HOSPICE

Klarius Group has raised over £15,000 in support of Douglas Macmillan Hospice (Dougie Mac) in 2020.

The hospice provides free end-of-life care for patients based in and around the Staffordshire Potteries area. Before the first lockdown last March,  employees from all brands took part in a sponsored exercise bike ride to Wembley, with participants from multiple departments all taking turns to complete the full distance. The initial target of 143 miles was eclipsed, with the team managing to cover 443 miles, enough to return back to Cheadle and reach Wembley a second time.

As well as pledging five percent of future dispenser and hand sanitiser sales to the charity, Emissco also donated a hand sanitiser dispenser with sanitiser for the hospice reception to help keep visitors, patients and volunteers safe.

Mark Brickhill, CEO at Klarius, is proud of his team’s efforts: “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. As a business, we believe it is exceptionally important to provide opportunities and support to the local community. I would like to personally thank everyone who has donated and helped champion this most worthy of causes.”
