Carpet Backing Charity

CUSHION backing donated by MILLIKEN helped to create a giant water slide as part of a charity event in Wigan during the summer.
The so-called Ticket to Slide event in aid of Wigan & Leigh Hospice involved a water slide built by volunteers using hay bales donated by farmers and cushion backing from Milliken. The two day event raised around £10,000.
Stuart MacDonald, senior production leader at Milliken commented ‘When Wigan & Leigh Hospice approached us to provide them with lengths of our cushion backing we were more than happy to help out. As a company, we pride ourselves on supporting the communities where we live and work.
‘We were delighted to be able to help raise awareness and donations for such a worthwhile cause.’
Wigan & Leigh Hospice is a registered charity which provides specialist care for those who are at the end of their life or offer help and support over an extended period of time to people living with a life-limiting illness.
