Today we had the pleasure of presenting a cheque for £352.00 to Bolton Hospice, a charity that is very close to our heart. We have supported the hospice for a number of years now and are thrilled to be able to assist in any way we can.
The money was raised at the Party in the Park fundraising event back in July. The fun day was held at Queen’s Park in Bolton and was a huge success, raising in the region of £5000.00 for the hospice – money that will be put to great use.
We attended the event accompanied by one of our Brasil commercial coffee machines, serving freshly ground coffees to members of the public. We raised £227.00 at the event, which considering how hot it was that day, we thought was great. It just goes to show, everyone still needs a coffee, regardless of the weather. Further kind donations from rijo42 staff increased our total to £352.00 and we were delighted to donate the money to Bolton Hospice today.
The cheque was presented in our commercial coffee machine showroom by rijo42 Ingredients Manager, Ben West to Bolton Hospice Event Manager, Maria Passarello. Whilst Maria was at rijo42 HQ, we also discussed further ways we can assist with fundraising and look forward to working with the hospice in the future.
