The money raised by Comet’s employees at its 250 stores during the partnership will help fund BHF’s Heart Nurses who provide essential care for sufferers of heart disease in their own homes.The charity was chosen after feedback from staff members. Veronica McCarthy, Social Responsibility Manager for Comet, explained: “We put our shortlist of charities to the vote across the business and the consensus was an overwhelming and resounding ‘yes’ to the British Heart Foundation. Many of our colleagues will be able to relate to the charity’s work, through knowing a friend or family member who is a victim of heart disease. BHF has a lot of events already in its calendar for 2005 in which we can get involved.” Advertisement About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
