Despite the tough financial situation many businesses, big or small, are facing, Farrell Heyworth decided it was important to make this donation to keep supporting St John’s, knowing they had experienced a significant drop in fundraising income due to the pandemic.

They are keen to help this local charity, which has continued working throughout the pandemic, in the hospice and in patients’ homes.

Company director Jeremy Collins said: “2020 was a difficult year for everyone, especially the charities that support our local communities.

"We are delighted that the housing market had rebounded strongly, allowing us the opportunity to support this outstanding local charity.

"We are proud to have the opportunity to be involved with the work of the hospice as almost every member of our team, along with many of the customers we serve, will have been touched by their essential work at some point.

“We’re looking forward to a successful 2021 and hope to be involved in more fundraising events as government guidance allows.”

Lisa Morgan, fundraising manager at St John’s Hospice, said “It's always great to have the support of local businesses, especially during these difficult times.

"To know we have the support of Farrell Heyworth is heart-warming, and all the money donated will be put to good use, helping us to keep caring for our patients across north Lancashire, the South Lakes and parts of North Yorkshire.”
