Industry machinery experts Haffner Murat Ltd and Warrington-based fabricator Sterling Windows, Doors and Conservatories have made a combined £5,000 charitable donation to Hope House Children’s Hospices which provides palliative care for children with life limiting conditions.
Dave Thomas, MD of Haffner Murat, explains: “As devoted supporters of GM Fundraising and Hope House Children’s Hospices both Haffner Murat and Sterling Windows were well aware of the negative impact the pandemic has on the charity this year. As such, we wanted to donate some much-needed funds to support the charity at this critical time.”
Dave continues: “We recently sold some new machinery to Sterling Windows, Doors and Conservatories. Instead of agreeing on the typical machinery discount, Andy Wells, Director of Sterling Windows and I decided to donate £2500 each.”
Hope House Children’s Hospices has faced a significant shortfall in 2020 with their various fundraising events being cancelled or postponed. To compound the issue, all face-to-face nursing now requires the use of full PPE, and the average cost per day for this is £78.00 per child.
As a result of their donation and ongoing support to the charity, both companies will become official GM Fundraising Champions. A specially commissioned GM Fundraising Champion logo has been produced and both companies can use and promote across their own business
