Middlewich Clean Team Press Release – 11/12/13

Middlewich Clean Team is celebrating after receiving a £300 donation from the GALAXY Hot Chocolate Fund.
The volunteer group was set up more than ten years ago to help keep Middlewich clean and tidy. Today it has more than 200 members who not only litter pick but also take part in environmental projects such as bulb planting. Additionally, members of the group travel around the country to help other towns set up similar initiatives.
Stephen Dent, Vice Chairman says: “This donation from the GALAXY Hot Chocolate Fund couldn’t have come at a better time. With the mornings and evenings grow darker one of our biggest needs is to provide our volunteers with safety equipment.
“With this donation we can now afford to purchase high visibility coats to keep our members safe.”
GALAXY Hot Chocolate is looking to help small, local community groups and charities across the UK and Ireland by donating cash awards to support warm hearted people and projects.
Open for entries until February 23 2014, the Fund will distribute five £300 awards to deserving recipients every week.
Michelle Frost, spokeswoman for GALAXY Hot Chocolate said yesterday: “There are thousands of warm hearted people and organisations that go out of their way to help their local community day in day out. The GALAXY Hot Chocolate Fund aims to support their work and hopefully inspire more people to get involved with local community groups.”
Applications to the fund can be made on the GALAXY Hot Chocolate website www.galaxyhotchocolate.com.
GALAXY hot chocolate offers the smooth creamy taste of GALAXY chocolate in a heart-warming drink.
