Hilary Devey, Founder and CEO of the UK's leading palletised freight distribution network, Pall-Ex, presented Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal with a cheque for £6,335.85, for The Princess Royal Trust for Carers, at a recent event.
This occasion was a gathering of carers and those they care for, at a holiday camp, and was arranged to give everyone a well deserved break, and to encourage carers to share knowledge to better equip them for dealing with situations that may arise when looking after a relative. In total, The Trust has 133 independently managed Carers' Centres, which reach over 310,000 carers.
Hilary has always been a generous supporter of charity work, and devised a 'penny-a-pallet' scheme many years ago. For each pallet delivered by Pall-Ex, one penny is donated to charity, allowing giving to grow in tandem with business success. This latest donation is one in a series, with The Trust benefiting by a total of £28,785.85 in the past twelve months. Last year, Hilary was named a patron for The Princess Royal Trust for Carers.
