Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity
As you will note from our previous article, we are delighted to continue our 2020 Charitable Giving Initiative into 2021, with the company committing, in addition to our main charitable partners, to donating £500 each month to a different charity.
We invited all our employees to nominate the charities that they would like to donate to in 2021 and are delighted to advise that the Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity was nominated by a number of our employees, therefore receiving a donation of £500 in February.
The Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity fundraise to ensure that every baby, child and young person treated at Scotland’s largest children’s hospital receives the extra special care they deserve. They raise funds to help those who tirelessly care for and nurture young lives at their most vulnerable; to invest in equipment, research and the continued improvement of facilities and services for children and families in hospital.
Kirsten Watson, Chief Executive, Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity said:
“We would like to share our thanks with Hacking & Paterson for this incredibly generous donation. We rely entirely on fundraising and donations to fund life-changing hospital projects to make sure that young patients and their families continue to receive the extra special care they deserve during these challenging times. Thanks to generous support of businesses and individuals across the country, we can continue our charity-funded play and events programmes, family support services, support for NHS staff and paediatric research to give children and their families the best possible hospital experiences.”
