Green-fingered Debbie Greensill, who works in Filtermist’s Aftermarket department, has been busy growing plants to raise much needed funds for two charities close to her heart.
Debbie took on an allotment four years and this Spring has put it to good use by growing a variety of vegetables and flowers – some to keep and some to sell to raise money for a prostate cancer charity and Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust. She took her first crop to Stafford car boot sale yesterday where she raised a fabulous £100 which will be equally split across the two charities.
“Both of these charities are important to me, but Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust is especially so as the team massively supported one of my colleagues and best friends, Jane Boon, when she tragically lost her young daughter Laura to cervical cancer during the pandemic,” said Debbie.
“The cost-of-living crisis is making fund-raising even more difficult for many small charities, so I am really happy to be able to do something to support the vital role that they play.”
Debbie will be taking more produce to the car boot sale at Stafford Common on 29th May to raise additional funds for both charities.
Filtermist’s Aftermarket Team is hoping to raise £20,000 this year for Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust. So far, the team has taken part in a charity clean and held a raffle, and next month Kelly Foster will be doing a sponsored 15,000 foot skydive at the North London Skydiving Centre. More details can be found on our news page.
