Portadown-based firm Ulster Carpets has presented NI Children’s Hospice with a cheque for an amazing £28,246 following a three year charity partnership with the charity.
Throughout the partnership, employees at Ulster Carpets raised funds through taking part in marathons, hosting bacon butty mornings, stew and dessert days. At Christmas time, employees also ran a raffle and vending machine promotions, which were always a great success.
Nick Coburn, Ulster Carpets Group Managing Director and Deputy Chairman, said: ‘”We are delighted to present NI Children’s Hospice with this cheque that the employees from Ulster Carpets Ltd have raised, I know that the funding will be a tremendous help to all of the staff and services that are providing daily care for all of the children at Horizon House and in the community.’
Jonathan Lamberton, Corporate Engagement Executive at NI Children’s Hospice, added: “This incredible donation from the employees of Ulster Carpets is fantastic to receive. It is the culmination of years of hard work and dedication by the team with people from right across the entire organisation involved in a range of fundraising and volunteering activities. Receiving such a significant donation is amazing and will make a big difference in our ability to care for children and young people living with a life-limiting illness”
