Scottish dairy gets its wellies on for charity
January 24, 2012 by Michael
A major dairy in Scotland is organising a fundraiser to raise money for the Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice.
Wiseman Dairies is famed for its iconic cow-print branding, seen on everything from milk packaging to delivery vehicles. Now, the dairy is extending this into its charity endeavours as it produces cow print wellington boots for its Welly Walk in aid of the hospice.
As with many charity events, promotion to drum up support is absolutely vital, so the company many benefit from producing promotional flyers, posters and banners using a local print shop. East Kilbride residents will join with those of neighbouring Glasgow to take part in the event; and anyone wishing to take part can sign up via the hospice’s website.
The Prince and Princess of Wales hospice relies on donations to the tune of £2.8 million each year, which means successful fundraising events like the Welly Walk are vital to its survival. Paul McMullan is the manager of one of the Wiseman Dairy sites. He spoke about the fundraising event, saying:
“It’s set to be a great day out for the whole family and will raise much-needed funds for The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice so they can continue their valuable work in the community.”
The Welly Walk is set to take place on 4th March 2012 in Glasgow’s Bellahouston Park and is a 5k circuit. Entry costs £15 for adults and £10 for children and more information can be obtained by contacting the hospice directly.
