Shop staff raise money for stroke care

Staff at a city supermarket raised over £2,100 for patients receiving stroke care in Lincoln, where one of their colleagues is currently receiving treatment.

Employees at Lincoln Morrisons organised and participated in a weekend-long event to raise money for the Stroke Unit at Lincoln County Hospital.

Lincoln Morrisons staff, who were not working on Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 January, gave up their free time to pack bags and run a raffle to raise funds.

Thanks to donations from customers and staff, they managed to raise over £2,100.

Checkout Supervisor Lynda Cairnie said: “The staff on the Stroke Unit at Lincoln County Hospital do a wonderful job of caring for all of their patients. It is our pleasure to hand over this donation.”

Junior Sister on the Stroke Unit Sue Chapman said: “We are extremely grateful for this kind donation.

“The donations we receive make a real difference to our patients. We cannot thank all of the staff and customers at Morrisons enough,” she said.
