Award winning Contractors, Investors and Developers, Barnfield Construction, have raised a fantastic £650 for Pendleside Hospice.
Barnfield are currently undertaking the major redevelopment work on the Bob Lord stand at Burnley Football Club and when they heard that a team from BFC’s Commercial Department were taking part in the Pennine Lancs 10K, in memory of a lady called Gail Simpson, they wanted to offer their support.
Part of the renovation work involved removing one of the old turnstiles from the Bob Lord stand and this was offered for sale on ebay to any Clarets fans who wanted the opportunity to own some Turf Moor history.
The turnstile sold for £400 and the money was donated to the BFC Team’s total for the Pennine 10K. Barnfield offered to match the £400 and the money raised was further boosted when staff at Barnfield voted Pendleside Hospice as one of their nominated charities of the year. A further £250 was raised from staff donations, dress down days and raffles.
Charlotte Pickup, Marketing Manager at Barnfield Construction went along to Burnley Football Club to present the money raised to Hospice Fundraising Manager, Kaye Bartle and they were delighted to be joined by Burnley midfielder Joey Barton!
“We think it’s important to give our staff the opportunity to choose which charities we support each year and Pendleside Hospice is always one of the most popular charity choices. The staff do a fantastic job at the hospice and we are pleased to be able to help support them in their amazing work.”
The money raised will help Pendleside Hospice to care for those in the local community given the devastating diagnosis of a life-limiting illness, and to support them and their families during a very difficult time.
