Bakkavor Freshcook workers donate £3,000 to Callum Pite's Smile charity




Freshcook employees were delighted to hand over £3,000 - the proceeds from a year of fundraising - to Callum Pite's Smile charity.

Every employee at the Holbeach St Marks business has the opportunity to nominate a charity of the year. The charity nominated by senior process technologist Emma Rose and chosen by the Freshcook Social Employee Forum (SEF) for 2018 was Callum Pite's Smile charity.

Named after Callum, who died aged 14 in 2013 after suffering a form of cancer called Ewings Sarcoma, the charity was founded by Callum's mum, Michelle, in his memory and aims to give a special gift or outing to young people aged 13 to 19 from the eastern counties undergoing treatment for cancer.

The money was raised through bake sales, a Tough Mudder endurance event and raffles.

This year's charity of the year has yet to be announced.
