Expect responds to emergency appeals during the pandemic
Expect Distribution has responded to the appeals of 2 local charities by donating £5000 to both The Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice in Huddersfield and The Overgate Hospice in Halifax.
Bradford based Expect has supported both charities over the years with fundraising events, Managing Director, Neil Rushworth is currently taking on the ‘I’m a Director get me out of here’ challenge for The Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice and has completed 3 bush tucker trials, with the 4th and final one to take place this week.
Neil commented “We have a great relationship with both of these charities and have supported them through fundraising for many years, the situation with this pandemic has resulted in events being cancelled and this has come as a major loss to the hospices that both rely on fundraising to enable them to support and give the best quality of life to the adults and children that they care for. I felt it only right that we do what we can to help in these awful and uncertain times and as a successful business that hasn’t closed during lock down it didn’t feel as though fundraising was enough, and we wanted to show our personal appreciation to both charities for the work that they do”
The Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice provides high quality, bespoke, specialist services for Mums and Dads to be, babies, children and their families, coping with life limiting conditions and living with loss.
