Great Ormond Street Hospital has always been a charity close to our hearts here at HPS, and we are proud to say that we have been making significant donations over a time period of nearly twelve years! We raise money for GOSH in a number of various ways that everyone everywhere can get involved in, from sports events, to raffles and auctions. We would love to share some of these events with you.
In 2016, we raised an incredible £89,000 which when added to the previous year’s efforts meant than in 12 years of raising and donating, we have raised over £500,000 for Great Ormond Street Hospital! We couldn’t be prouder that, as a company, we have contributed towards changing the lives of children, adults, and families throughout the United Kingdom. It has also given opportunity for our own company to come together throughout the branches, with other companies and our great customers to do something really special!
Recently, we have conducted seven charity golf days which everyone loves taking part in but also have offered us a great opportunity to raise even more money. As well as swinging our clubs, we hold raffles and auctions for people to get involved in – with each participant donating their hard earned money. The 2 most recent events have enabled us to raise a staggering £10,000 each time!
“It’s ni“It’s nice to give something back” – Peter Wilson (HPS Merchants Sales Director)
Not only do we plan sports events to raise money for GOSH, but events that allow our teams to bond and communicate with our customers, all while having fun and raising money. We hold company curry nights, bowling competitions, and breakfast mornings around our many branches.
As a company, we have to also recognise the efforts of some individual team members, of which there are too many to mention here – for their solo fundraising efforts for GOSH. We’ve had marathon runners, mountain climbers and long distance endurance cyclists amongst our ranks over the last 12 or so years – who all wanted to raise money for their exploits which we have been able to add to our running total.
Rebecca Robertson – Senior Fundraising Executive of Great Ormond Street said “Thousands of children pass through the hospital doors each year. Each one of these young patients is unique and we do everything we can to help them, and the families who love them. Knowing that we can rely on fundraisers like Heating Plumbing Supplies Ltd. enables us to plan with greater confidence and means our young patients can continue to rely on the excellence of care for which the hospital is renowned worldwide.”
Here at HPS, we take pride in the fact that we are doing everything that we can do in order to raise money for such a kind-hearted charity, whilst bringing communities all over the south of England closer together for an amazing cause at our events.
