Charity of the Year Adoptions
Woodlands Hospice is delighted to be the corporate charity partner of Crossfield Construction for 2017/18.
The Liverpool-based construction business began the partnership by kindly sponsoring the hospice Christmas Tree for our special Light Up A Life campaign during the build-up to Christmas 2017.
The connection is of special significance as three staff members: 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.
Located at the Brunswick Business Park, Crossfield 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 thanks to all their staff for their support to date.
How your company can get involved
To be adopted as a corporate charity partner or 'charity of the year' is a wonderful way for local businesses to support Woodlands Hospice.
Charity of the year adoption means that regular staff fundraising events take place throughout the year. Events will vary depending on the size of your company, although examples include: raffles, cake sales, dress down days, challenge events, sports events or quizzes. In fact anything at all that staff are willing to undertake!
In 2016/17 we were delighted to be the charity of the year for Marks and Spencer in Aintree and HSE in Bootle. Staff at M&S took part in a number of activities including climbing Snowdon (pictured), raffles and helped to raise over £10,000.
Amongst many other activities, staff at HSE arranged a sponsored football match during their charity partnership.
The following companies have selected Woodlands Hospice as their charity of the year in previous years:
- Liverpool Mutual Homes
- John West
- Natwest Bank
- Jackson Canter
- Royal Bank of Scotland
