Bury based William Hare Group, a world leader in steel fabrication, has raised £10,000 to support Prestwich based children’s charity MedEquip4Kids. William Hare Group chose to support MedEquip4Kids in memory of their former colleague and MedEquip4Kids patron Jim Hall, who sadly past away early in 2016.
The Children’s Ward at Royal Preston Hospital is soon to receive five new Ready-bed Sleepers thanks to a generous donation from the Morrisons Foundation.
MedEquip4Kids works with medical staff, community nurses and other registered charities to provide equipment and improve facilities in hospitals. Our policy is to fund items known to improve the care provided to children, but not readily available within the NHS' limited budgets.
Increasingly, the larger hospitals employ fundraisers to secure extra funds the NHS cannot provide, but smaller hospitals and community teams do not have access to a fundraising officer. It is common to find nurses and paramedics fundraising in their spare time and during their working day.
MedEquip4Kids believe these staff should be focusing on caring for children and the charity's aim is to fundraise on their behalf. The money raised is spent directly on the items they request and no money is passed on to any third party.
