Workers around the Yorkshire coast are being invited to Bring a Pound to Work to raise vital funds for Saint Catherine's.

The charity is holding the event on Tuesday July 5, supported by Scarborough Business Ambassadors - a group comprising leading figures in business and local government and representatives across a variety of sectors.

The idea of Bring a Pound to Work Day is simple – businesses across the local area encourage their teams to ‘bring a pound to work’ and all the proceeds go towards helping Saint Catherine’s look after patients and their families, both in the hospice and at home.

Tracy Calcraft, fundraising and marketing director at Saint Catherine’s, said: “Bring a Pound to Work Day is always a highlight in our calendar and we’re really looking forward to another fun-filled day of fundraising.

“We are so grateful for the ongoing support of This is the Coast and also Scarborough Business Ambassadors – and of course all those kind supporters for bringing in their pounds. We really appreciate everyone’s support despite the current economic challenges.”

Matthew Pells, This is the Coast managing director, said: “We love Bring a Pound to Work Day – it’s a great opportunity for the Yorkshire Coast to come together and both celebrate and support Saint Catherine’s.

"Once again, our team will be out on the road collecting your coins and broadcasting live from wherever we happen to be.

"We’d like to get to more business than ever before this year, so please sign up as soon as you can so we can plan the collecting routes.”

Susan Richings, a director at Scarborough Business Ambassadors, said: "We would like to urge our fantastic, supportive Scarborough community to contribute - particularly the business community, large, medium or small.

"For our part, we will visit businesses and organisations together with staff from the hospice and radio station to help receive your generous donations, whatever you can offer.

“Every pound that is given maintains the wonderful - and free - support for deeply-appreciated services which provide comfort and care for many people and families when they need it most. Help us to share the spirit of kindness that Saint Catherine's symbolises, especially in these difficult times."
