Black Cat staff raise money for Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice

Black Cat staff and Forget Me Not cheque

Last year we teamed up with Huddersfield based Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice and helped them raise funds by selling a charity firework in our Factory Warehouse during the run up to Bonfire Night. Staff members also raised funds by participating in the 10K Charity Race Event in Leeds. Altogether, we managed to raise a total of ÂŁ5948! Well done to the team!
