Introducing our Charities of the Year for 2020

We are pleased to announce that we are partnering with Butterwick Hospice and 4Louis as our Charities of the Year 2020.

Colleagues at all branches will be participating in various fundraising events throughout the year, including taking part in the Great North Run, a charity walk, coffee mornings, volunteering, collecting donations from fundraising buckets in all of our 10 branches and company events.

Butterwick Hospice are a charity who aim to improve the quality of life for those who have a progressive life limiting illness, as well as those close to them and to offer positive support for every challenge they may encounter during their illess. They have three hopsices, Butterwick House Children's Hospice, Butterwick Hospice Stockton and Butterwick Hopsice Bishop Auckland. They all off the ongoing help that families need during a very difficult time.

The money raised for Butterwick Hospice will allow them to continue to provide its services free of charge to patients and their loved ones, which costs the charity £10,000 per day to do so. The money we raise will make a big difference for the lives of people in the Hopsices' care.

4Louis is a UK charity that works across the country to support anyone affected by miscarriage, stillbirth and the death of a baby or child. They also work to improve the care bereaved families receive from health care and other professionals.

The money raised for 4Louis will help the charity provide useful tools, equipment and training free of charge to hospitals, hospices and other professionals who sadly have the job of comforting grieving families who suffer a miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal or child death.

Please donate to help us support the amazing work that Butterwick Hospice and 4Louis do daily, all donations raised will be split 50/50 between both charities.
