WDH employees raise nearly £800 for two local hospices

Published 29 July 2014

Kind-hearted Wakefield and District Housing (WDH) employees have donated nearly £800 to two local hospices.

Wakefield Hospice and Pontefract’s Prince of Wales Hospice each received a cheque for £387 following a collection at a recent internal WDH event.

The cheques were presented to both hospices by Sarah Chatham, WDH’s Resident Involvement Manager.

Sarah said: “We are delighted to be able to support both hospices through our fundraising activities, and hope the money will really make a difference.”

Keeley Harrison, Senior Fundraising Manager at Wakefield Hospice, said: “Like all donations, we’re absolutely thrilled to receive this cheque from WDH employees and I’d like to thank them for their continued kindness and generosity.”

Amanda Jubb, Assistant Fundraiser at the Prince of Wales Hospice, said: “Every penny means mountains to us.  85p of every pound goes towards patient care in the hospice, so all donations go a long way.”
