Manorlands this year celebrates its 40th birthday.

And the Oxenhope Sue Ryder hospice is urging businesses to help it mark the milestone by fundraising for the charity.

Regional fundraising manager, Hannah Taylor, said: “Please support us however you can to make our 40th year an incredible one for Manorlands, and to ensure we can continue to provide care for the next 40 years.”

She said firms could choose Manorlands as its charity partner for the year, take on 40 challenges, collect clothing and other goods for sale in Sue Ryder shops or participate in activities planned by the organisation.

Or workers can organise their own events, such as parties or bake-off competitions.

“We can provide a fundraising pack with materials whatever the idea,” said Mrs Taylor.
