Pavers Foundation donates to CRUK in memory of Leonora Fox-Bharry

The Pavers Foundation, employee-led charitable initiative of multi-channel footwear retailer, Pavers, has recently donated £1,000 to Cancer Research UK on behalf of a colleague from Jones Bootmaker, a subsidiary of Pavers.

Celia Mercer, customer advisor at Jones Bootmaker in Bluewater Shopping Centre applied for funding through the Pavers Foundation’s employee-led grant application scheme which encourages all colleagues of the business to apply for grants on behalf of charities and causes close to their hearts.

Celia applied for funding in memory of her late friend Leonora Fox-Bharry who very sadly passed away from Cancer. The donation was made to raise money for a scanner at the local hospital to help others who are diagnosed and being treated for ovarian cancer.

Celia thanked the Foundation for the donation in memory of her friend; “Thank you so much to the Pavers Foundation for this kind donation, the money will be used towards a scanner for early detection in other women, Lenna’s last wish was to do something for others to give them the chance she never had.”

The Pavers Foundation is delighted to make this meaningful donation on behalf of one of its valued colleagues and is committed to its mission to make a difference with every pair sold, donating 2.5% net profits from the business each year to the Foundation, along with the proceeds from the sale of all carrier bags across its stores in the UK and Ireland.
