We’re feeling the festive spirit this Christmas after supporting local Dudley Group NHS Charity with their Twilight Santa Dash. Raising funds for the Children’s Emergency Department Appeal, the Twilight Santa Dash took place at Russells Hall Hospital on Thursday 5th December. The Children’s Emergency Department appeal has a fundraising target of £100,000 to improve the environment in which younger patients are treated, with particular focus on vulnerable patients and those with special needs.
To show our support, some of the team went along to the event armed with mince pies and drinks for all of the runners. Keen to get involved, Matt from Latham’s Sales Team also took part in the run of two laps around the Hospital. Alex Latham, Managing Director of Latham’s said, “It’s important to us as a company to show support to our local community and with Russells Hall Hospital being such an integral part of that, we were only too happy to help”
Fundraising Manager from the charity Karen Phillips met with the Marketing team at Latham’s to discuss opportunities to get involved and show support for their current appeal. Karen said, “Support from companies such as Latham’s is a fantastic opportunity for us to raise vital funds for our Children’s Emergency Department Appeal. We want to ensure that younger patients not only receive the best care, but do so with the best experience possible”.
