Lees will continue to make a donation from every pack of Lees 10 pack Snowballs and Teacakes sold and will support CHAS’s fundraising events throughout the year including the annual ladies lunches held in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen.
Lees has been a proud supporter of the children’s charity since 2013. To celebrate the announcement, the company held a special afternoon tea for children and their families at Robin House in Balloch where they all tucked in to Lees Macaringues. Joining in the celebrations were one year old twins Daniel and Cole McAuslan.
CHAS is the only provider of hospice care services in Scotland for babies, children and young people with life-shortening conditions. The charity offers care in Robin House in Balloch and Rachel House in Kinross as well as through its CHAS at Home service which covers the whole country. Lees provides both houses with a selection of its confectionery for families visiting with their loved ones.
Sheevaun Thomas, New Product Development Manager at Lees of Scotland said: “The care and assistance that CHAS provides to these families when they are going through such a difficult time is second to none. Every time we visit one of the houses we are humbled by the work the charity does.
“We are incredibly proud to continue our partnership for another year which offers both financial and in-kind support.”
Megan Stobo, Corporate Fundraiser for CHAS, said: “We are so grateful to Lees for this continued support. We currently provide care to over 400 families across Scotland and we rely almost fully on funding from our supporters to deliver these vital services. Lees’ support over the past three years has been invaluable and we are looking forward to continuing to work with the team.”
