Leyland's Ad-Options Ltd celebrate their own 25th anniversary by handing over 1,000 loop keyrings to another Lancashire organisation in its silver year, St Catherine's Hospice in Lostock Hall
Presents are set to be dished out all over Lancashire after two local institutions joined forces to commemorate their silver anniversaries in 2010.
St Catherine’s Hospice in Lostock Hall opened in 1985 – the same year that business gifts specialists, Ad-Options Ltd were formed in Warrington, before a move to Leyland two years later. To mark the occasion, the latter has presented the former with 1,000 branded Ad Loop keyrings that can be given out as incentives to potential donors who can support the charity’s excellent work in the community.
Maureen Nickson, head of trading at St Catherine’s Hospice, received the gifts from Steve Ward, managing director of Ad-Options Ltd, in a presentation at the Lostock Hall facility, and will be presenting the striking fluorescent loops to supporters of many of the Hospice’s forthcoming events during their anniversary year.
The timing of the presentation was significant, with 29th April marking the precise anniversary of the first care activity that took place within the home in 1985.
Steve Ward, managing director of Ad-Options Ltd, whose main website at BusinessGiftUK.com features on the loops as sponsor, said:
“We are delighted to be able to share our anniversary year with such a prominent local institution that provides a superb service to those within Chorley, South Ribble and Preston who need its care and support.
“When we discovered the link, we were very pleased to be able to make the offer to donate these ad loop keyrings free of charge. Loop fobs always prove to be well received gifts, and will provide the recipient with a constant reminder of the Hospice service to the local community.
“Hopefully it will encourage more people to support the excellent work they do, and help their 25th year to be one of their most successful so far in terms of fundraising and awareness.”
