John Lewis raises over £17,000 for local hospital charity

The company has supported the charity in a variety of ways – including Bakewell Wednesday cake sales, hosting the Charity’s Buskathon performers, support via the company’s Community Matters green token scheme, and general fundraising by its Partners in their Cribbs Causeway store. John Lewis also provided a Christmas display for Southmead Hospital and has for the past three years organised a style and make up pamper day at the hospital for women living with cancer.

 “We’re so grateful to have such a supportive corporate partner,” explains Southmead Hospital Charity’s community appeals manager, Adrian Brown.

 “John Lewis is local to us, and we really value the support of all of the Partners who work there, and the customers who shop there. We look forward to many more years of working with John Lewis.”

 The money raised by John Lewis for Southmead Hospital Charity has supported the Charity’s Prostate Cancer Care Appeal, the Breast Care Centre at Southmead Hospital, and the Charity’s Christmas Appeal. 

John Lewis PR and marketing co-Ordinator Nicola Mason says: “We are delighted to support Southmead Hospital Charity. The valuable work carried out at Southmead Hospital touches so many local people and it has been our privilege to contribute to the Charity. We look forward to new and innovative ways of working together to raise even more money to benefit our local community.”
