A company with Corporate Social Responsibility at it’s heart has made a fantastic donation to kick start 2021!
Throughout the pandemic, CHUF has worked tirelessly to respond to additional requests from the hospitals that support our Heart Heroes, who have been facing increased pressure due to greater need and tighter government restrictions. One such urgent request was for a new echocardiogram machine and multiple probes, for dedicated use at Sunderland Royal Hospital’s outpatient heart clinics. Given the unprecedented need, CHUF gladly agreed to pay for this large vital piece of equipment at a cost of £54,000. Amazingly, some corporate friends stepped in to lend a hand and share the financial burden…
Each year employees at Primula Ltd and Kavli UK Limited nominate charities they feel make a positive difference to their local communities, for a share of donations, courtesy of the Kavli Trust. CHUF was fortunate enough to receive a large proportion of staff votes and in turn, were given a hugely generous £35,000.
This money will help towards the cost of this incredible piece of medical equipment; helping vulnerable Heart Heroes to be scanned and treated closer to home, whilst also relieving some of the workload at the NICU at Freeman Hospital, Newcastle.
“When I went to to the socially distanced cheque presentation at Primula, we had no idea how much the donation would be for and never in a million years thought it would be such an incredible amount!” – Alicia (Corporate and Events Fundraising Manager)
A massive thank you to everyone at Primula who voted for CHUF to recieve a donation from the Kavli Charitable Trust.
