The past few months have been busy here at Autonet particularly for the charity committee who have been working endlessly to fundraise for different charities both local and national. The committee and staff at Autonet always strive to raise a substantial amount of money towards for charities that need our help.
You may remember a few months ago we gave an update on how we were doing with the fundraising for the Cheethams Children Centre. We successfully raised £2200 to pay for a counselling room at the children’s centre that will help with patient and family care.
With the hospital now up and running, this week members of the charity committee visited Cheethams to look at the finished counselling room which will be used in a matter of weeks. Everyone from the committee could see from viewing the room how much it would benefit the families and children that go to the children’s centre.
When visiting we also presented our second cheque to the Cheethams Children Centre for the Oncology Unit after successfully raising £1200. The money will go towards making the children’s stay a little more pleasant.
Lynette Barlow Community Fundraiser at UHNS commented: “We would like to thank Autonet for this donation, it will pay for items that will benefit the children that come to Cheethams and make their stay a little better.”
Whilst we were on the visit we noticed the centre has a fish tank with all sorts of cold water fish that are named by the children who are at the centre. It was put forward that it would be a nice idea to donate a fish to their tank to add to their collection. The committee will be going down to the centre to hand over the Autonet fish in the next couple of weeks.
Staff at the North Staffs University Hospital appreciates the donations that we have made by fundraising and by holding dress down days.
Ian Donaldson Managing Director of Autonet Insurance commented: “It’s great to see the Cheethams Children Centre will benefit from the donations we have raised for a much needed Counselling Room and items for the Oncology Unit.”
