An avid fundraiser has raised money for the hospice, as part of her continued commitment to supporting local charities.
Jean Madin and her team of fundraisers presented a cheque to the hospice at Jean’s local pub, the Coliseum Picture House (Wetherspoon’s) in Cleethorpes.
Her latest fundraising saw Jean and her team of volunteers hold a cake stall at the hospice, and hold various tombolas and raffles at the Wetherspoon’s branch in Cleethorpes, raising £241 in total.
Jean decided she would become a fundraiser after her father passed away in 2004. Shortly after, she moved to Cleethorpes where she has continued fundraising for a number of local causes.
Jayne Smith, a close friend of Jean’s, moved to the area around the same time as and got on board with her fundraising. Jayne said: “The team is like one big happy family. I had a break from fundraising but it feels great to be back with everyone again. I really missed it.”
Jean added: “We want to continue doing things to help people and we are so lucky we are able to do that living in this area. I cannot thank the people and businesses of Grimsby and Cleethorpes enough. We live in such a generous community.”
Charity Fundraising and Events Coordinator for the hospice, Marilyn Taylor, said: “Jean’s dedication and determination is to be admired. She has gone through a rough time herself with illnesses and has still continued to raise money to help others – we are very grateful.”
