Workers from Morris Lubricants and its sister company, Morris Leisure, have raised a further £11,953 for Hope House, a local hospice for children, taking the total for the past two years to almost £26,000.

Morris Leisure runs a number of touring and holiday home caravan sites, and the employees of both organisations ran a variety of sponsored events to raise the money.

Paul Cox—an engineer at Morris Lubricants, which makes products like agricultural oil and cutting fluid—cycled for 66 miles around Loch Ness. Owen Lloyd, the chief operations officer at Morris Lubricants, undertook the challenging Long Mynd Hike together with co-workers Russell Fox, Kim Mamaras and Joe Fox.

There was also a charity football match against Greenhous, another local company, as well as a number of raffles, a charity cake day, a Christmas jumper competition, and a sweepstake for the Grand National, among other events.

Andrew Goddard, the executive chairman of Morris Lubricants, said that many local people knew about Hope House and the great work it does. He said the employees of the Morris companies had shown great teamwork in raising almost £26,000 for the charity in recent years. He added:

“We are delighted to support Hope House in any way we can. As parents, we all hope that we will never need to use their services, but it’s reassuring to know that Hope House is there to support children and their families.”

Hope House’s area fundraiser, Bekki Fardoe, expressed the charity’s gratitude for the support provided over the last two years.
