Blandy & Blandy has donated a further £6,000 to two local charities, taking the total amount provided to date to £8,000.
The firm’s chairman, Nick Burrows, said: “We are very pleased to be supporting these two fantastic local charities and to continue to fundraise in support of their incredible work. The vital role that both the Royal Berkshire Hospital and its staff and the wider NHS play in our lives has never been more evident than during the past 15 months.”
Jo Warrior, Director of The Royal Berks Charity commented: “We are delighted to receive this further donation from Blandy & Blandy and thank them for their continued support. The funds will support two fantastic causes; our paediatric appeal to update the current overnight bedside facilities on our children’s ward from not so comfortable camp beds to very comfy reclining chairs, and our new staff health and wellbeing centre. The centre will support the ongoing physical and psychological wellbeing of the teams at the Royal Berks by improving access to health and wellbeing activities and services.”
Sarah Critchley, Chief Executive of BIBS - Babies in Buscot Support, added: “Babies in Buscot Support is incredibly grateful for the donation of over £3,000 from Blandy & Blandy, a substantial sum to our small charity. The funds will be of huge benefit to us in our charitable activities – buying lifesaving medical equipment and refurbishing facilities on the neonatal unit, funding nurse training and providing regular emotional support for families of sick and premature babies.”
In recent years Blandy & Blandy has donated close to £100,000 to local charities, while continuing to support Cancer Research UK’s Will Scheme and other fundraising activities and events in the region.
