Cornish company Polymermedics is calling local companies to join in the fun of fundraising for Children's Hospice South West (CHSW).
Polymermedics putting the fun into fundraising
The community-minded business is sponsoring CHSW's brand new 'It's a Charity Knockout' event, taking place in Truro this May, and is encouraging others to sign up too to bounce, run, and slide in the ultimate team challenge to help Little Harbour children's hospice!
Neil Skyba, Technical Manager of Polymermedics in St Austell, says:
"Polymermedics were looking for a local charity to support as part of our desire to become active in the local community. CHSW's Little Harbour was the unanimous choice to support as they deliver a real benefit to families from the surrounding area.
"Our aim is to use our contacts to help raise a significant amount of donations and also introduce them to the great work done at Little Harbour to widen the spectrum of companies that support this great charity.
"Little Harbour is an amazing place, brimming with fun and laughter. What better way to help than getting together a group of work colleagues or friends and re-discovering your childhood in this fun It's a Charity Knockout challenge? We certainly couldn't wait to put a team in!"
Colleagues from Polymermedics visited Little Harbour on one of the special monthly visit days held at the Porthpean children's hospice and were inspired to help.
Little Harbour is a very special play with tailor-made family friendly facilities. The soft play room gives every child a safe place to laugh and play, the sensory room provides a calming or stimulating environment for children with complex needs. The family room is a place for everyone to relax together whilst the children's bedrooms feel like home.
Bernadette Chambers, Corporate Partnerships Fundraiser for CHSW's Little Harbour, adds:
"It isn't simply the quality of the environment that makes Little Harbour such a special place, it is the love, friendship and smiles found inside.
"We are thrilled to have the support of Polymermedics for this new event, and into the future. It is only because of such kindness and generosity that we are able to help families with life-limited children make the most of every precious moment they have together.
"The It's a Charity Knockout is a fantastic team building event with a difference. They'll be lots of fun and entertaining games involving colourful inflatables, water, bubbles, costumes and props! It would be great to see teams from around Cornwall joining us for this exciting fun day out whilst raising vital funds."
It's a Charity Knockout will take place at Truro Rugby Club on Sunday 12th May. Join in the fun! Find out more and download your team registration form at www.chsw.org.uk/knockout or phone 01726 871800.
