The wholesaler also donated brooms to the Pendleside Witch Walk and ran a hot food stand at the Pendleside Witch Festival on September 17th.
Elaine Middleton, head of corporate partnerships at the hospice said: “Birchalls embraced and best demonstrated the key principles of this year's Pendleside Hospice Corporate Challenge. They showed great teamwork, community spirit and commitment to the cause. The award is well deserved.”
