The Power of Donation | Webhelp and Together for Short Lives

News
21st August 2019

Since we announced our partnership with Together for Short Lives our teams have been busy organising several fun events to raise money for the charity. We are delighted to report that the involvement and enthusiasm of employees has been exceptional.

Together for Short Lives is the UK’s leading charity for the 49,000 children living with life-limiting conditions, and their families. There are 54 hospice services in the UK that support seriously-ill children, providing specialist clinical care alongside practical and emotional support for all the family. Webhelp’s 13 offices across the UK are raising money to help fund this life-changing care and to create awareness of the invaluable work the charity does.

On Sunday 7 April, our Glasgow Hope Street Engagement Ambassadors organised a charity football match between the two client campaigns that we support on site. This took place at the Toryglen Football Centre next to the national stadium Hampden Park. The teams raised an admirable £235.

The success of the first charity football inspired a follow up game, a highly entertaining Cup Match between Glasgow Hope Street and Falkirk. It was a close match that saw Falkirk win 6-4. The event raised over £500 for the cause.

On Sunday 28 April, employees from our Glasgow Hope Street site hit the streets to participate in the Kiltwalk to raise funds. The team finished with aplomb and have since tallied up over £1300, with more to come.

Other fundraising events have included a lively campaign launch in Rothesay, a sale of goodies from our home bakers in Kilmarnock and creative Henna tattoos from our Falkirk teams, plus more events are planned for the future.

The charity is delighted with all the varied initiatives introduced so far, in addition to the commitment shown by Webhelp’s employees. Karen Yates, Corporate Partnerships Manager at Together for Short Lives said:

“We have loved how Webhelp have thrown themselves into supporting Together for Short Lives in every way they can, and in the most fun, imaginative ways possible. They are truly making a lifetime of difference for children and families at the children’s hospices they are helping us to support.”

Overall, each site is working hard to raise vital funds for Together for Short Lives to help ensure families create memories that will last a life time. Through on-going fundraising events Webhelp endeavours to make a difference and to ultimately promote the power of donation.

David Turner, Chief Executive Officer, Webhelp UK commented:

“We are deeply honoured to support the incredible work of Together for Short Lives. The charity strives to make every moment count for the children and families it cares for, a sentiment we really believe in at Webhelp.”
