Yetton Together, a charity that provides a community centre facility and supports projects in Kirkheaton, West Yorkshire has received a cash boost of £2,300 thanks to the fundraising efforts of Diane Hardcastle, a Morrisons colleague based in Huddersfield.
Diane raised over a thousand pounds by making face masks at home and passing on the proceeds to the charity, which was matched by the Morrisons Foundation through our ‘Match Funding programme’.
“I’ve been involved with Yetton Together for quite a few years now. The charity runs a community centre where I volunteer and help run the Saturday morning cafe as well as a monthly flower arranging class”
“It was my daughter’s idea to get out the old sewing machine to help our hospital and a local care home with home-made scrubs and face masks. We then came up with the idea to raise money for Yetton Together; selling the masks just for a small donation. We also asked for donations of any spare material and elastic. We were inundated with requests for them and I asked my sister and a couple of ladies from the centre's craft group for help so we made hundreds of masks, I've not actually counted how many we’ve made! I’m delighted that my home-made masks have raised so much for the charity and thrilled that the Morrisons Foundation has been able to match this amount pound-for-pound.”
