Cleaners for Causes Awarded Corporate Partnership


A dry cleaning service that was launched in Butterwick Hospice high street shops by philanthropic dry cleaning company, Cleaners for Causes, is celebrating six years of top quality local service and substantial donations to charity. The local company is being made an Corporate Partner of Butterwick Hospice in recognition of their loyal support.

Cleaners for Causes which launched in Butterwick Hospice shops in April 2009, offers local people access to good quality dry cleaning at very attractive prices, 15% of which is donated to Butterwick Hospice Care.


The service which is now available from seven of Butterwick’s high street shops grew quickly from an innovative concept to be a profitable business model and a very useful source of income for the Hospice group. In just the last three years Cleaners for Causes has raised over £11,700 towards patient care.

Craig Heathcote, Development Officer at Cleaners for Causes said: “I am delighted that what started out as a simple idea has developed into a means of raising funds for such an outstanding and deserving local charity.  To have had our contribution recognised by being made an Corporate Partner of Butterwick Hospice is amazing, and I look forward to continuing to work together in the future.”

Cleaners for Causes, offers a quality dry cleaning service for all types of clothing and some soft furnishings such as curtains. The service is available from Butterwick’s shops in Stockton, Bishop Auckland, Barnard Castle, Thornaby, Darlington and Cockerton Village.


Graham Leggatt-Chidgey, Chief Executive of Butterwick Hospice Care said: “We are delighted with the partnership between the Hospice and Cleaners for Causes and indeed delighted with the response from our customers.”

“It is excellent to be able to offer such a good quality service to our supporters which also benefits the work of the hospice.”

“We recognise the contribution Cleaners for Causes has made over the last six years. We greatly appreciate this support and look forward to working in partnership Craig and his team for many years to come.”

“It will be a pleasure to formally recognise the contribution Cleaners for Causes has made to Butterwick at our next Corporate Reception on 6th May.”
