Principle raises £25K for Richard House, London's first children's hospice
Principle Cleaning Services, the London-based cleaning specialist, has raised £25,000 for Richard House Children's Hospice in East London.
Staff based at Principle's head office and throughout its many client sites supported the initiative, holding events such as office tuck shops, quizzes, sweepstakes, barbeques, sponsored bike rides, walks in Snowdonia and more.
Richard House provides palliative care to children suffering from life-threatening and life-limiting conditions. It opened its doors in the year 2000 and now supports over 300 families from across London delivering specialist care and supporting families, completely free of charge. The charity also provides a range of activities for all the family to enjoy, relying heavily on the generosity of donors in order to care for the most vulnerable children in our society.
Chris Baker, chief executive at Richard House Children's Hospice, says of the contractor's support: "Raising over £25,000 is a brilliant achievement for our first year of partnership and has gone towards helping Richard House expand our new services such as Hospice at Home, meaning crucially we can offer our families more choice in how they receive vital care.
"Huge thanks goes to all Principle staff who engaged in the partnership, and to their clients and stakeholders who also joined in the activities. We look forward to continuing our partnership into 2021."
Douglas Cooke, executive chairman of Principle Cleaning Services, says: "We are delighted to have raised these funds, which will help to support children and their families through some extremely challenging times. Richard House is dedicated to providing the best possible care and facilities for those in need and we are proud to play our part. This was a real team effort from all our staff across Principle and our many clients, and I'd like to add my personal thanks to everyone."
