Whalley country store’s gift for Rosemere

The team from Whalley Corn Mills has handed over a cheque for £754.50 to charity Rosemere Cancer Foundation.

Friday, 1st October 2021, 12:30 pm

The donation was raised by the country store’s customers, who took up an invitation earlier last month (September) to join a group morning dog walk organised by staff and to enter their pets in a family dog show later that same day.

The store in Mitton Road began supporting Rosemere Cancer Foundation 15 years ago when its founders John and Dorothy Townson were still in charge.

Their son and current managing director Jonathan Townson and his staff have continued that support by hosting an annual pet themed family fun day. Over this time and with this year’s donation, they have gifted almost £6,000 to the charity.

counties, including those at Burnley General Teaching and the Royal Blackburn Hospitals .
