Warrington’s Webhelp raises £1450 for St Rocco’s Hospice

3rd February 2014

Customer experience company, Webhelp UK, has raised £1450 for St Rocco’s Hospice in Warrington. 

150 customer experience professionals participated in a ‘Dress down month’ during December to raise the money for this worthy cause. 

St Rocco’s Hospice has been providing specialist care for people with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses for 28 years. Every year, St Rocco’s helps hundreds of people by providing clinical and emotional support, nursing care and complementary therapies. 

Local contribution and charitable fundraising are a vital part of the work undertaken by Webhelp teams across the UK. On-site Webhelp Ambassadors co-ordinate fundraising activities and ensure all events are given the support they need to raise as much money as possible for the chosen charity.

With such a long history in the Warrington area, the Webhelp team were eager to support such a vital institution. 

Webhelp Communications Manager, Leigh Jones, commented on the fundraising efforts undertaken by the team and the importance of this aspect of Webhelp’s work. Leigh said: 

”Charity fundraising is a key component of Webhelp’s ethos and it was fantastic to see so many of our colleagues take part in this event. Our site Ambassadors are currently working with St Rocco’s staff, planning a number of events to assist their fundraising efforts in the coming months.  

“The Warrington team fully appreciate the contribution St Rocco’s makes to Warrington and the surrounding area and we want to offer the hospice as much support as possible. It is a charity that is close to many hearts and we are very excited to be working alongside it.”

Claire Houghton, Fundraising Manager at St Rocco’s commented on the contribution from the Warrington Webhelp team and the hospice’s plans for the coming year. Claire said: 

“St Rocco’s is very excited to have been chosen as Charity of the Year for Webhelp’s Warrington site and we are looking forward to getting our fundraising efforts underway. Webhelp colleagues will be working together with St Rocco’s on a number of events this year, including the ‘Dragon Boat Race’ and ‘It’s a Knockout.

“The Hospice is keen to develop its ‘Living Well’ service this year- enabling patients to cope better with their symptoms in the home and the support and fundraising of companies like of Webhelp is crucial to our work. Their support will help make such a difference to the families cared for at St Rocco’s.”
