More than £1,000 raised by Air Products PLC in aid of Beaumond House Community Hospice, Newark,
More than £1,000 has been raised to help the vital work of a hospice.
Beaumond House Community Hospice, Newark, received a cheque for £1,275 from Air Products PLC, a global industrial products company.
Toby Gourley and Chris Porter, who work on the east commercial team, were born and raised in Newark.
Last year to mark Air Product’s 60th anniversary, employees were asked to take part in the 60for60 challenge, where they volunteered for a minimum of 60 minutes for a local good cause.
The team chose Beaumound House and spent a morning tidying the front gardens.
Toby and Chris also nominated Beaumond House to be the team’s chosen charity.
They presented the cheque to Katherine Wright, corporate and events fundraising officer at Beaumond House.
Katherine said: “We are so grateful to Air Products for their support to Beaumond House.
“This cheque will go a long way in providing comfort and care to our patients and ensuring the great work of the hospice can continue.
“I am really looking forward to working with Toby and Chris to grow Air Products involvement with Beaumond House in 2020.”
