Chairman starts fundraising for chosen charities

Eden District Council’s Chairman John Thompson has commenced his fundraising work for his chosen charities in 2014/15, Eden Valley Hospice and the Neurological Alliance.

The Chairman’s fundraising efforts this year are being supported by the Penrith branch of Santander.

Council Chairman, John Thompson said: “I am raising money this year for two fantastic charities. The first, Eden Valley Hospice is very well established in the local area and provides support and care for people and their families who have a life limiting illness. The second is the Neurological Alliance, who collectively with over 80 national and regional brain and spine organisations, helps to make life better for the 10 million people in the UK who have a neurological condition.

“I am absolutely thrilled that Penny Cowperthwaite and her team from Penrith Santander are supporting my fundraising efforts and yesterday (1 July) they held a Cake Day and raised £411.91. Santander has kindly match all the money raised from the cake sale for Eden Valley Hospice so the total is now £823.82! I would like to thank all of Santander’s staff and customers for their generosity. I look forward to organising more fundraising activities throughout this year for both charities.”
