B&M Waste Services donate £4000 to Children’s Heart Surgery Fund
West Yorkshire waste management provider, B&M Waste Services, are continuing to support local charity, Children’s Heart Surgery Fund, through a donation of £4000.
Children’s Heart Surgery Fund supports babies, children and adults born with congenital heart defects across Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire. In addition to their donation, B&M Waste promote the charity on the side of their iconic big yellow trucks, as a continuing assistance in spreading awareness of the valuable work the charity facilitate.
Georgie Abbott, Corporate Partnerships Manager at Children’s Heart Surgery Fund commented “Thank you so much to everyone at B&M Waste who has been involved in fundraising activities to support Children’s Heart Surgery Fund (CHSF). We are incredibly grateful for the very generous donation of £4,000. To put this into context, £4,000 could cover the cost of 40 Kardia Mobile Devices, allowing patients to record their heartbeat remotely, which means children won’t need to miss school for endless hospital visits. This year we particularly enjoyed working with the B&M Waste staff who volunteered at our CHSF Superhero Walk. It was brilliant to see the children enjoying B&M Waste educational recycling games about why we need to take care of our planet. We look forward to working together again in 2020.”
Jayne Kennedy, Senior Marketing and Social Value Manager said “We’re so pleased to be able to support such a wonderful cause. Whilst we can’t imagine how difficult it must be for parents and families in this situation, particularly at this time of year, we hope this donation can continue to aid the charity in providing support and ground-breaking equipment for the children they work with.”
B&M Waste will continue to support the charity with volunteers, fundraising and most imminently with donations of Christmas presents in December which will be given to children who sadly need to spend the festive period in hospital.
