Crossfield is delighted to announce a new corporate charity partnership with Woodlands Hospice.
The partnership will begin with Crossfield sponsoring the Hospice Christmas Tree for their annual ‘Light Up A Life’ event in early December.
Crossfield will work with a number of charities across the North West over the coming year, but Woodlands was chosen as the corporate partner due to many of the Crossfield team having experienced first-hand the amazing work that they do.
Representatives from Crossfield, David Cain, Lisa Manley and Lucy O’Connor visited Woodlands to meet with Rose Milnes, Chief Executive Officer and Christine Peach Corporate & Community Fund Raising Manager to discuss various initiatives we will support them with.
Special guest Mrs Patricia Baldwin also joined us, grandmother of David and Lisa, who experienced the care and support of the Hospice when her husband William was there six years ago.
Woodlands Hospice Charitable Trust is an independent charity located in Aintree and covers a population of over 330,000 in North Liverpool, South Sefton, Kirkby & Knowsley. The population served by Woodlands Hospice includes some of the most socially deprived communities in the country with some of the worst rates of cancer and heart disease in the UK.
The centre provides Specialist Palliative Care to people with cancer and other life limiting illnesses with complex needs. All care and support at the Hospice is provided completely free of charge and therefore each year they must raise over £1m.
“ We are absolutely delighted to have the support of such an exciting dynamic company and look forward to working closely in 2017/18.”
“We are delighted to be entering this partnership with Woodlands. Not only does it cement Crossfield’s ethos of supporting the communities in which we live and work; but it is a special place for me and my family. We have witnessed the love and support that Woodlands provides to families and it is our pleasure to be able to give something back. ”
