Global Windows Donates Over £4,000 To Children’s Hospice

by | Jun 22, 2022 | Charity

After donating over £4,000 to children in need in the past year, Emplas installer Global Windows has renewed its partnership with Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.

Last May, Global Windows pledged to donate £5 to the hospice for every window and door installation carried out, helping to support children with life-threatening illnesses, as well as their families.

Last August, the company also sponsored a hole in one competition at the Bondhay Golf Club Captains Charity Golf Day, an event that helped to raise over £6,700 for the charity.

“Since May last year, we’ve carried out 809 installations across South Yorkshire, which adds up to £4,045 in donations to Bluebell Wood, something which we’re very proud to have achieved,” says Global Windows managing director Liam Hulme.

“We are dedicated to providing local homeowners with quality products and services, but helping our community and vulnerable children in need is also paramount, which is why we’re delighted to have pledged another year of donations to Bluebell, a fantastic charity that has changed so many people’s lives.”

Samantha Wood, head of fundraising at Bluebell Wood, said: “We’re incredibly lucky to have the support of such a community-spirited local business who’ve raised an incredible sum over the past 12 months.

“The funds raised through Global Windows’ innovative initiative have helped us make truly priceless memories that local children and families will always treasure.

“We’d like to say a huge thank you to Global Windows for a fantastic year and we look forward to working closely together over the coming 12 months.”

Since 2008, Bluebell Wood has been supporting children with life-threatening illnesses, both in their own homes and at their hospice in North Anston.

They currently care for around 300 families across South Yorkshire, North Nottinghamshire, North Derbyshire, and parts of North Lincolnshire, providing family respite care, sibling support, music therapy, physiotherapy, end of life care, and bereavement support.

It costs the hospice almost £14,000 a day to keep its doors open, 85% of which is completely reliant on donations.
