PROjEN raise money for a new decking area
PROjEN, the specialist engineering project management company, based in Preston Brook, Cheshire has worked closely with Halton Haven Hospice for over 12 months to raise money for a decking area. The Hospice provides a range of services aimed at supporting patients at different stages of their illness. Services include a day hospice, physiotherapy, complementary therapy and family support services. The decking area, set in the woodlands surrounding the hospice has been hailed a success by patients and families since its arrival a few weeks ago.
Shaun Pollard, Director of Corporate Services at the Hospice says, “This is an excellent example of local companies working with the Hospice to improve the service we offer our patients and their families. PROjEN have been fantastic partners to work with and the result is a wonderful area for people to relax in the peace and tranquility of our woodlands.”
Fundraising events including a sponsored bike ride, Christmas party raffles and second hand book sales as well as staff and company donations over the past year stacked up to a staggering £6,000. PROjEN then created a decking area, with seating facilities that will accommodate the patients and families who enter the Hospice.
Martin Seabrook MD said. “It is fantastic to see the level of support and commitment from everyone at PROjEN throughout the lifecycle of this great cause in both raising money to fund the project and co-coordinating the build. I am delighted with the amount of time and money PROjEN and its suppliers have donated towards such a worthwhile charity”.
Contributors to the project include PROjEN, MRC Transmark, Artisan Measurement & Control Ltd, Enterprise Rent a Car, Safety Supply Company, Speedy Hire, Tyco Valves, Clancy Consulting & Atkins Vause the decking Installer.
The decking was officially opened by Dave Elliott (PROjEN Business Support Services Director) on August 2nd 2011 when PROjEN also donated £1000 to the Hospice. A cheque was presented to the Hospice’s Director of Corporate Services, Shaun Pollard by Procurement Manager Mark Warrington and Chairman John Taylor from PROjEN.
