Charity of the Year Adoptions
Woodlands Hospice is thrilled to announce a new Corporate Charity Partnership with Crossfield Construction.
The Liverpool-based construction business will begin the partnership by kindly sponsoring the Hospice Christmas Tree for Light Up A Life 2017.
The connection is of special significance as three members of staff from Crossfield: David Cain, Lisa Manley and Nichola Cain, had personally experienced the care and support of the hospice four years ago when their grandfather, William Baldwin, was cared for at Woodlands.
Crossfield Construction, located at the Brunswick Business Park, has undertaken significant building projects in the education, residential, health and commercial sectors. Key recent projects include work at Salford Royal NHS, Liverpool Ropewalks and the City of Liverpool Community College.
We are absolutely delighted to have the support of such an exciting dynamic company and look forward to working closely in 2017/18.
Being nominated by local companies to be the Charity of the Year is a wonderful way to support Woodlands Hospice.
Charity of the Year adoptions mean that regular staff fundraising events take place throughout the year. Events will vary depending on the size and composition of the staff teams. Examples include: Raffles, cake sales, dress down days, sponsored football tournaments or quizzes. In fact anything at all that staff are willing to undertake!
In 2016/17 we are delighted to be the Charity of the Year for Marks and Spencer in Aintree and HSE in Bootle. Staff at M and S have undertaken many activities including climbing Snowdon (pictured), raffles and are aiming to raise over £10k.
Staff at HSE have also undertaken a sponsored football match with many more events planned.
The following companies have selected Woodlands Hospice as their Charity of the Year in previous years:
- Liverpool Mutual Homes
- John West
- Natwest Bank
- Jackson Cantor
- Royal Bank of Scotland
