Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service has pledged its support to Dougie Mac’s Bring a Pound Day which takes place on October 9, to raise much needed funds for the Blurton hospice.

“Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service is delighted to be working with the Douglas Macmillan Hospice. We are keen to work with partners to get our potentially life-saving message out to all areas of the community.”

Donna Broadhead, Prevention Manager

Fire Stations across the North of the county will be accepting £1 donations from members of the public.
Firefighters and hospice staff will also be collecting donations at a variety of locations across North Staffordshire between 10am and 6pm. These include Tesco stores in Meir, Longton, and Hanley, the Intu Centre in Hanley, Morrisons in Newcastle-under-Lyme and Asda in Tunstall
Donna Broadhead, Prevention Manager said: “Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service is delighted to be working with the Douglas Macmillan Hospice. We are keen to work with partners to get our potentially life-saving message out to all areas of the community.”  
Suzi Smith, Head of Corporate Fundraising & Events at Douglas Macmillan Hospice said: “We’re very excited to have Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service on board for Bring a Pound Day, every £1 counts this Friday so we’d encourage the local community to drop their donation into their local community fire station”.

The campaign, which began in 2011, was officially launched last year, and has so far raised more than £211,000 for patients with life-limiting illnesses.
