Cranswick Convenience Foods, a long-standing supporter of Bluebell Wood, have asked for their loyalty points from equipment supplier QJS (UK) Ltd be used to benefit the charity this Christmas.

In return for the loyalty points Cranswick have accrued during 2020, QJS have made a £200 donation to Bluebell Wood.

Rachael Dawes, Individual Giving Manager at Bluebell Wood, said: “We’d like to say a huge thank you to the team at Cranswick for thinking of Bluebell Wood and to QJS for making the generous donation this Christmas.

“It’s been a challenging year for us from a fundraising perspective so every penny we raise really does make a huge difference to the families in our care.”

A spokesperson for QJS said: “We’re delighted to be able to contribute to such a fantastic cause that does so much to help children and families going through the toughest of times.

“We’d also like to express our gratitude to the team at Cranswick for helping us spread some festive cheer this Christmas.”
