A generous business owner has pledged to donate a portion of her profits to The Gazette’s Hospice Heroes campaign.

Kerry Reilly, 25, recently took over FotoXcel Photography Studio, in Fleetwood, and after reading about the push to raise £200,000 for Trinity Hospice and Brian House Children’s Hospice decided to get involved.

She has vowed to donate £10 from every £25 photoshoot booked at the studio, on the Esplanade, before the end of the year – and hopes to raise more than £200.

She said: “I have never really had the opportunity to do anything like this before.

“I saw some of the stuff about the appeal in The Gazette and thought I should get involved.

“I have always wanted to do charity work but never got round to it before.”

And she said with Christmas just around the corner, now is the perfect time for her to get behind the campaign.

She added: “Any vouchers bought, even if its a Christmas present, still count.

“I couldn’t afford to give a big cash donation but I thought this is something I can do.

“I just think this is something good for people in a time of need.

“It is something that is going to make a big difference for a long time for a lot of people.”

The Gazette’s Hospice Heroes campaign aims to raise £200,000 to help bring the facilities at Trinity Hospice and Brian House up to date to meet modern standards.
