Howards Motor Group
Howards has supported the hospice for a number of years, and is the headline sponsor for our flagship event, The Mendip Challenge.
Managing Director Peter Coleman said:
Weston Hospicecare is a great, unsung success story which relies on the help and support of the local community.
There can be few among our staff, customers, family and friends who have not been touched in some way by the wonderful care and support that underpins everything the hospice does.
Weston without a hospice would be difficult to imagine, which is why we at Howards have been enthusiastic supporters for many years past, and will continue to be for many years to come.
Sandford-based cider firm Thatchers supports the hospice in a number of ways, not least by acting as headline sponsor of the hospice’s newest event, the Men’s March.
Martin Thatcher, fourth generation cidermaker, said:
We’ve been honoured to be supporters of Weston Hospicecare for a number of years, getting involved in many different types of activities to assist in their fundraising efforts.
From welcoming their volunteers to our open days, donating raffle prizes, and most recently participating in the Light Up A Life, and Men’s March events, this is an organisation close to our hearts that deserves everyone’s support.
Giulio Ellis and Gemma Zaire, co-owners of Giulio’s Italian, said:
Our passion for everything local has drawn us towards supporting Weston Hospicecare, the charity means a lot to our business on a personal level and supporting them is such a reward.
A team from Balfour Beatty’s Somerset operation to link Hinkley Point C power station with the National Grid has adopted the hospice as its charity partner – a link which has seen team members volunteering at the hospice, joining events, and taking on intrepid fundraising challenges.
HSES Project Partner David McCabe said: “Our ambition for the Hinkley Connection Project team is to support a local charity who shares our passion for health, safety and wellbeing. And a charity which resonates with our employees. Everyone at some point in their life can be affected by cancer or rely on the support from a hospice.
The team has really benefited from our relationship with Weston Hospicecare – through team-building events, like The Three Peaks Challenge and It’s A Hospice Knockout. But also from visiting the hospice and listening to presentations from their frontline staff.
We’ve seen increased workforce engagement, a strong sense of pride within the team and plenty of determination to raise as much money as we can.
