Housing staff wear red with pride to support heart fund
Incommunities’ workers and sheltered residents have teamed up to raise money for the Leeds-based Children’s Heart Surgery Fund.
Bucket collections at the housing group’s Shipley base raised over £140 whilst residents and staff at Farish House in Keighley collected £180 following a coffee morning.
The money raised will go towards funding ground-breaking new equipment, resources and training and research to help both children and young adults with congenital heart disease. It will also help provide support for families that have been affected.
Geraldine Howley, Incommunities Group Chief Executive, said: “A big well done to Farish House residents and Incommunities staff who have pulled out all the stops to raise funds for this great cause.
“It’s been wonderful to see so many colleagues wearing red with pride.
“It’s the second year running we’ve supported the unit’s life changing work caring for both children and their families.
“With more donations coming in we are aiming to reach the £400 mark!”
