Throughout 2022, Whirlpool UK Appliances has extended its support for palliative, neurological and bereavement support charity, Sue Ryder, which runs Thorpe Hall Hospice in Peterborough, through a variety of fundraising events and activities to raise money for the charity, in addition to regularly donating appliances.
Sue Ryder’s multi-disciplinary team includes doctors, nurses, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, complementary therapy, bereavement counsellors, and psychological and spiritual support. The Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice in Peterborough is the only specialist palliative care inpatient unit in the city, and also offers a ‘Hospice at Home’ service, which provides patients living in communities in and around Peterborough with the opportunity to receive care in their own home.
Ian Moverley, communications director, Whirlpool UK, said: “We are extremely proud to have continued supporting Sue Ryder throughout 2022, with our colleagues taking part in numerous fundraising events and activities throughout the year. The care and support provided by the Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice is vital to those living in Peterborough and the surrounding communities, and we are therefore thrilled to be able to volunteer our time, donate resources, raise funds and increase awareness for an extremely worthy cause that is important to many of us here at Whirlpool UK. We look forward to continuing to support the work done by Sue Ryder in the coming years.”
Cheyenne Smith, community fundraising manager at Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice, said: “Our corporate partners play a key role in working to ensure that we can be there for people during the most difficult times of their lives and we are delighted and grateful to every colleague who got involved with a fundraising activity this year. The breadth of support that Whirlpool UK has shown us over the last year will have already gone a long way in helping us to provide more expert and compassionate palliative care and bereavement support and we look forward to continuing our partnership into 2023.”
