We are pleased to announce we have nominated 2 local charities for which we will be looking to raise funds for through various events over the coming years. The charities we have chosen are below and we have created Just Giving pages for each of these to enable you to donate. Please take the time to read about the chosen charities and remember that whether it is £1 or £1,000, you can make a difference!
The Wipe Your Tears children’s charity was started in 2004 and is based in the North West.
The charity is committed to raising funds to brighten the lives of seriously and terminally ill children and offer support to young children who suffer abuse whereby there is no other outlet at present for them to approach.
Nothing breaks the heart like watching a child suffer but nothing warms the heart more than the laughter of a happy child!
St. Mary’s is close to heart of one of our staff. When Christine’s daughter, Francesca, was born prematurely weighing only 1 lb 9 oz without the fantastic lead up and follow on support received from the hospital the difficult journey endured would have been so much more traumatic.
The charity supports the work of the hospital by purchasing additional equipment, improving the environment and supporting research projects towards reducing the number of premature baby deaths in the North West.
You can donate to St Mary’s Hospital Charity via our Just Giving page at http://www.justgiving.com/summ-itstmarys or via their website at http://www.cmftcharity.org.uk/our-hospital-family/saint-marys-hospital-charity
