Tennant UK donates toys and crafts for childrens hospice
Tennant UK has chosen to support Derian House Children's Hospice as its 'local' charity for the company's North West based office in Bolton following a vote from all staff.
In May Tennant UK made a donation of toys and arts and craft supplies for the children being cared for.
"Unfortunately, Derian House could not accept donations of Easter Eggs due to a lot of its children being unable to consume them due to their dietary requirements," explains Tennant UK marketing manager Daniel Cross. "So the charity asked if instead we could do an Easter themed craft collection."
The team at Tennant UK's Bolton office donated an impressive selection of activity books, paints, crayons, colouring sets, soft toys and craft supplies.
Derian House provides respite and end-of-life, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The team helps children and young people, whose lives are too short, to make happy memories in an environment of fun, respect and above all, outstanding care.
This care is free for families, but services cost £6 million to run every year with under 30% of the funding needed, coming from the Government.
"We look forward to continuing to support Derian House throughout the year and our team are very passionate about our involvement with a local charity doing such great work," adds Danny.
Thanking everyone at Tennant UK that contributed to this collection, a grateful Ellie Smith, community fundraiser at Derian House, says: "We rely on the generosity of our friends within the community - like everyone at Tennant UK -and we are truly thankful and appreciative of their support.
