To kick start our fund raising we have two projects running up to the Christmas break. The first involves their ‘Cancer_Caring For Patients and Families Appeal’, this encompasses all wards and departments at Russells Hall Hospital in Dudley dealing with cancer patients, including the Georgina Unit (oncology ward) as well as the rehabilitation and reconstruction units. We have pledged £1,000 and all donations made by to the appeal will be doubled by Chartway, up to a total of £1,000.
By the way, if reading that has filled you with the ‘true spirit of Christmas’ or you just want to make sure we maximise our pledge, then you can always log onto http://new.thebiggive.org.uk/project/Cancer_CaringForPatientsAndFamilies, click Donate Now and make donation. To be in with the best chance of getting your donation doubled, the charity are making a really big push for donations starting at 10:00am the 6th,7th and 8th of December.
The second part of our pre-Christmas project for this charity is a donation we have made this week. Over the years our customers and suppliers have been used to receiving a New Year’s greeting card. Instead this year they will receive an e-card Christmas greeting and we are donating the £350 cost of cards & postage to the Russells Hall Neonatal Unit.”
