CHARITY CHEQUE PRESENTATION MADE TO FRIENDS AND FAMILY
A cheque presentation was held at the end of February during a cocktail reception hosted by South West regional contractor, Pollard, to the Plymouth based charity Friends and Family.
Held at the Royal Yacht Club in Queen Anne Battery in front of a large gathering of the region’s leading construction professionals and clients, Pollard’s Managing Director Bill Badham handed over a cheque for over £3600, money raised by their staff at the company’s Christmas Party.
Bill Badham said “As a regional contractor with all of our staff based locally, we are very keen to support organisations who undertake such important work within our own communities. The work carried out by this particular charity is so important to the lives of so many families and was a key reason as to why we have chosen to support them.”
Along with Hannah from Friends and Families, it has been a delight to meet Harry Parker and his family, who many of you may recall was part of the One Show Rickshaw Challenge for Children in Need last year, along with five other young adults.”
Responding from Friends and Families, Hannah Whiting, Lead Fundraiser said “It has been a delight to work with Pollard and come along to the cheque presentation evening and they have raised such a fantastic amount too! It will go a long way to helping local families who have children experiencing disabilities and additional needs in Plymouth and surrounding areas.”
The Plymouth based charity provides support and services for families with disabled children ranging from social and learning activities as well as training and advice. Further information can be found on their website www.friendsandfamilies.org.uk or call on 01752 204369
