Blakemans supports local hospice to mark milestone year



Sausage manufacturer James T. Blakeman is celebrating its 65th anniversary this year by organising a range of fundraising events for DougieMac, a 
North Staffordshire hospice providing palliative care for adults affected by cancer.

The first event that the Blakemans team will be taking part in is the DougieMac’s 5K race later this month. A team will also take part in the hospice’s annual bike ride in May, which Blakemans is the headline sponsor for. Participants and spectators will be able to sample some of the manufacturer’s sausages at a barbecue laid on at the end of the course.

Other fundraising activities planned during 2018 will see staff members take part in marathons, fun days and sponsored body waxes.

James Morris, head of business development at Blakemans, said: “As a business we have always actively supported a number of local charities and community groups through donations, but with this being such an important year for us we wanted to mark it by doing something extra special.

“We already have a great relationship with the DougieMac Hospice and it’s such a worthwhile local charity for us to get behind and support.

“Committing to undertake multiple events throughout the year is a real challenge but one that I know the whole team will rise to.”
