Playing Santa pays off for Lee as a terrific £200 is raised for children in hospital

Published: 19th September 2016

A huge big thank you and well done to one of P2G’s most loyal individual supporters Lee Crook of Sainsbury’s in Didcot who raised an incredible £200 for Play2Give. 

This fantastic amount of £200 will be donated to the Oxford Children’s Hospital (CHOX) which was raised from his sponsored walk back in December.

Lee also raised £200 for the Sue Ryder Nettlebed Hospice – the current charity of the year of Sainsbury’s in Didcot – where Lee works on nights.

Lee walked for just over a staggering 6 hours on the day before Xmas Eve trudging through fields from Didcot all the way to the Oxford Children’s Hospital whilst dressed as Santa.

Congratulations Lee! Good work as ever! This accumulates to over an estimated £1,110 that Mr Crook has raised since late 2014 for local charities including that for P2G’s causes such as CHOX and Headway Oxfordshire .

He has plans in 2016 to run an Easter raffle, to another Sleigh2Give festive fundraising campaign (albeit not walking such the long distance next time round) and another Christmas toy appeal for the Oxford Children’s Hospital, and getting the ‘P2G’ logo tattooed on his body.
