Angel Springs supports hospice fundraiser

November 10, 2011

Angel Springs, the UK’s leading service provider in the Watercooler Industry, participated in raising funds for Compton Hospice by providing the venue for a popular radio breakfast show.

Some weeks ago listeners of Wolf Radio station that covers Black Country-Birmingham and southeast of Wolverhampton, could enjoy and participate in DJ Dicky Dodd's breakfast show, broadcast from Angel Springs’ Ettingshall headquarters. The aim was to contribute to raising funds for important and necessary improvements at Compton Hospice that has provided expert palliative care for terminal patients for more than 25 years.

The local Community promoted a “Bring a Pound to Work” day whereby people around the Black Country were encouraged to donate at least a pound to “Raise the Roof Project”, as the improvement plan is called. The ultimate goal of this plan is to raise up to £1 million to make necessary betterments in the hospice.

This was not the first time that Angel Springs supported such efforts. The company started actively aiding Compton Hospice three years ago through different fundraisers, by making donations through its award-winning Payroll Giving Scheme and by organizing charitable events such as the “It’s a Knockout” event.

It was also not the first time Angel Springs and Wolf Radio station worked together for the same goal. “This was the second time Angel Springs hosted the Dicky Dodd show and had fun whilst raising money for both Bring a Pound to Work day and Jeans for Genes day,” said Rachel Jones, Commercial Manager at Angel Springs.

This is a good example of how a company can make a difference and contribute to the local community where it lives and works.
