£500 is perfect gift for children
AFTER hearing about the acts of kindness carried out by children’s charity Wipe Your Tears, staff at household goods retailer PerfectHome chose to donate £500 to the organisation.
Wipe Your Tears is based in Spa Road, a Bolton, and for 10 years the charity has dedicated itself to helping seriously or terminally ill children and their families make the most of their time together.
The charity uses its donations to provide mental, physical and financial support for children and their families who are suffering from serious illnesses or domestic or sexual abuse.
Store manager Mike Connolly said employees at PerfectHome in Crompton Place were more than happy to choose that charity for the donation. He said: “All of our team were touched by the fantastic work this charity does and we were delighted to be able to support them through the Community Outreach Programme.”
Damian McCoy, charity chairman of Wipe Your Tears, said: “We are very grateful for the recent PerfectHome donation.
“Our work simply isn’t possible without the generosity of local businesses and the public.
“This gift will help us help even more children and assist in our target of supporting 1,500 children during 2013.” Wipe Your Tears has used previous donations to buy vital medical equipment for children’s hospitals and for Christmas presents for suffering children.
Kerry Moreland, a representative from Wipe Your Tears, said the donation would be put to good use.
She said: “This money will go towards helping terminally ill children realising their last wishes.”
The PerfectHome Community Outreach Programme gives an annual £30,000 to good causes around the UK.
