Thank you to our brilliant business community

On behalf of all the staff, volunteers, patients and families at St Oswald’s Hospice, we would like to say a huge thank you to the wonderful businesses who haves supported us though the Covid-19 pandemic.

At a difficult time, you have come together to show the hospice such incredible support. Your kindness has given our whole team such a boost.

From cash donations to our Covid-19 response appeal, to gifts of vital PPE, hand sanitiser and toiletries for our patients to DIY equipment to complete work around the building, we have been overwhelmed by your generosity.

Here are just some of the fantastic businesses who have helped:

  • Paint company AkzoNobel donated paint to help decorate some areas of the hospice that needed some TLC. As we have fewer people in the building at the moment, this was a perfect time to undertake the work needed.

  • Staff from Newcastle-based engineering firm Arup made a donation to our appeal, from funds raised by their office tuck shop. The tuck shop volunteers chose St Oswald’s as the charity to benefit, raising a huge £1,000.

  • We were delighted to receive a fantastic donation of £3,000 from P&G as part of their Charity of the Year partnership with the hospice. They boosted this further by donating a range of toiletries for our patients & cleaning products to be utilised by our Facilities and Housekeeping Teams

  • Ubisoft sent us a much-needed donation of £3,168 towards our work – a huge thank you to them.

  • North P&I kindly donated £1,000 towards our appeal and we can’t thank them enough.
