PYMOOR-based crisp manufacturer Corkers has pledged to donate 3p from ever pack sold to the Liam Fairhurst Foundation.
The foundation was launched in 2011 by Liam Fairhurst’s brother Callum in his memory and Corkers has been a supporter since the start.
Liam was diagnosed with a soft tissue cancer in his leg and lungs in July 2005 when he was just 10–years-old. He went on to raise £340,000 for charity before his death in 2009.
Corkers managing director, Rod Garnham, said: “3p from every pack sold will go directly to the Liam Fairhurst Foundation. We will be adding a charity logo to every single packet of crisps sold within local counties such as Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, Suffolk, Peterborough, Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire.
“We also plan to carry out a number of stunts that will inevitably include us being confined in the Corkers classic Mini Cooper - a very confined space - together for an unsociable amount of time – we’ll keep you posted on that one!
“The whole Corkers team feels very humbled to be closely involved with the Liam Fairhurst Foundation and will endeavour to do any fundraising activities – however crazy – suggested by Corkers customers on Twitter or Facebook.”
