Carrier Bag Tax Raises £4,000 For St John's Hospice

A carrier bag tax at four local supermarkets has been put to good use - raising £4,000 for Lancaster's St John's Hospice.

The money was raised at the Booths stores in Kendal, Kirkby Lonsdale, Carnforth and Scotforth.

Jo Humphrey, Fundraising Manager said: "We were so excited to receive such a fantastic donation from these Booths stores – we are touched that the staff have chosen St John’s as one of their beneficiaries.

"This money will go directly to helping patients and their families in North Lancashire & South Lakes area when they need it most.“

Jonathan Metcalfe, Trading Manager at Booths Kendal added: “St John’s was a popular choice amongst the colleagues in store as it was deemed a very worthy local cause, with many staff knowing of someone who had been touched by the care at St John’s. 

"We were more than happy to make this donation.”
