Collaboration helps local charity

A recent collaboration has seen two businesses and a charity come together in an innovative way.

The idea discussed between Stafford based charity, Katharine House Hospice, Northwest based printing company, The Printing House and Midlands based Westgate Group, who supply products used in construction and renovation, has delivered a win win for all involved.

When the Westgate Group needed to purchase cards to send to clients, as a thank you for placing orders, a conversation and idea developed to see if there was a more innovative way of achieving this. Bringing together the need of Westgate, the skill and specialism of The Printing House, and the corporate fundraising arm of the Katharine House Hospice bloomed into 250 cards and a donation of £250.00 being delivered and gratefully received by the charity this week.

David Collins-Lafferty, Marketing Manager at the Westgate Group, commented:
“The donation was only made possible by the generosity and kindness of The Printing House, who agreed to print and design the cards for free. We simply wanted to purchase a number of cards that we could use to say thank you to our clients, and we knew there just had to be additional benefit for a fantastic local cause within this. In the end 500 cards were produced, of which we donated 250 to the charity along with a donation of £250.00”.

Carl Gilbert who has been the Business Development Manager at The Printing House for 5 years, added:

“We have worked with Westgate for a long time and knew of the great work being carried out at the hospice. We were delighted to be involved and to help make the donation possible; after all, it’s rewarding when you can use your everyday job and skill to make good things happen”.

Formed in 1989, Katharine House Hospice provides a range of services offering help, care and support for people with advanced life-limiting conditions across mid-Staffordshire. These conditions include Multiple Sclerosis, Motor Neurone Disease, End Stage Renal Failure and Cancer. All services are free of charge, so the hospital relies heavily on the £2.7 million required to run the hospice each year.

Rebecca Martin, Corporate Fundraiser at Katharine House Hospice, commented:
“We are so grateful for this creative new partnership, it is a great way to support us and we hope to continue working together into the future, thank you to all involved!”

The Katharine House Hospice are always looking for new and innovative ways to raise funds from corporate donations, so if you would like to support the Hospice in an innovative way, contact Becky Martin for more details on 01785 270808.
