Kellaway Building Supplies rallies to raise money for their chosen charity Children’s Hospice South West. The Bristol based company has lined up some fantastic events for 2016 to fundraise and the charity ambassador Sean Morgan is even completing an Ironman in July in aid of the charity.
Kellaway will spend the next 12 months focusing their charity efforts on Children’s Hospice South West, who provide hospice care for children with life-limiting conditions and their whole family across the South West. The care they offer is wide ranging; respite and short breaks, emergency care, palliative care and end of life care. They operate three hospices; Little Bridge House in North Devon, Charlton Farm in North Somerset and Little Harbour in mid Cornwall.
The company is pulling out all the stops with their fundraising, by introducing a dress down day, cake sales, toy donation, baking competitions and more. “The aim of these events is for us all to have a bit of fun in work and to do some good and raise money for the hospice. The charity is quite amazing and what they do is really moving. The hospice itself doesn’t have the feel of a medical facility in any way, it feels like a nice fun hotel for kids and their families (they do emphasise the fun in their approach). What is also great is that they take a holistic approach to their care where they cater for the whole family when they stay at the hospice, giving the well children a nice experience and parents a much needed break,” states Abbie Tovey, personnel & welfare manager.
Kellaway’s operations & commercial director Sean Morgan, who is also the company’ charity ambassador has been training hard for his Ironman challenge in July in efforts to fundraise for the charity. This has not been an easy feat for Sean, especially when his training was interrupted by a road accident last month. However, after hospital care and a brief break from work he is even more determined to complete his goal.
