Incommunities is bringing some early Christmas cheer to a West Yorkshire hospice after a staff vote to choose the group’s 2017 festive charity.
This week the housing group’s Chief Executive, Geraldine Howley, was delighted to hand over a cheque for £1,000 to Ryan Judson from the Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice.
The hospice in Oxenhope provides dedicated care for people with life limiting illnesses living in Bradford, Craven and the surrounding area as well as support for their love ones during such difficult times.
All its care provision is free but the hospice costs £3.4 million a year just to maintain its services.
Each year Incommunities makes a festive donation to a different charity instead of sending out Christmas cards to customers and partners.
Geraldine Howley said: "We are delighted to support the excellent work of everyone at Manorlands. This donation follows a poll among our staff to find out the cause they most wanted us to support.
"The hospice’s work touches the lives of so many local families some of whom will be connected to staff and customers of Incommunities.
"We are all proud to support this cause."
Ryan Judson, Community Fundraising Officer for Manorlands: "Incommunities’ wonderful donation is hugely welcome. We could not deliver incredible care without such local support.
"The donation will go towards our ongoing work providing person-centred care at the hospice and in people’s homes. Thank you everyone at Incommunities!"
