A Worcestershire-based skin care company is joining forces with a national blood cancer support charity to raise vital funds to support leukaemia patients across the UK.
Schmoo Skincare, who are based in the Shrub Hill area, are this week announcing the partnership with Blackpole-based Leukaemia Care.
The company, owned by Fiona and Matt Otley, chose to support the charity as Matt’s own life had been touched by leukaemia, as he lost his mother to the disease when he was just a child.
Matt is no stranger to the charity, having run the London Marathon in April 2018 and raising over £2,000 in the process.
Now, the family-owned business will be making a huge difference to others affected by leukaemia as they have pledged £1 for each Schmoo Apricot Treatment Oil sold either online or through their spas located in five Hilton Hotels across the UK.
Each Schmoo Spa will be holding fundraising events for Leukaemia Care throughout the rest of the year. The Spas are based throughout the UK in Cardiff, Surrey, Wokingham, Tewkesbury and Brighton. Schmoo in the Country Hilton Puckrup Hall Tewkesbury have already raised £700 at their fundraising event in April. Schmoo would like to thank all their customers and staff for their generous support.
Emily Sweeney, Corporate Fundraising Officer for the charity, said, “We are delighted to form a partnership with Schmoo Skincare. The fundraising that has already happened has proved to be a fabulous start to our partnership and we thank all who participated.”
Matt and Fiona Otley said, “We are delighted to be partnered with Leukaemia Care and are really looking forward to working together for 2018.”
