Housing firm donates to hospice
A HOUSING firm delighted staff and volunteers at a Northwood hospice when it handed over a cheque for £1,000.
Workers from Thrive Homes visited Michael Sobell House, Rickmansworth Road, Northwood, on Wednesday (18) to make their donation.
The Watford-based company had decided to make a donation to charity instead of sending Christmas cards during the festive season and staff voted for the Northwood hospice to get the cash.
Elspeth Mackenzie, chief executive of Thrive Homes, was also given a tour of the centre.
She said: "It is a pleasure to hand over the cheque which I know will be put to good use and am looking forward to finding out more about the charity's work and to seeing their rehabilitation unit."
Geraint Hughes, corporate and trusts fundraising manager at Michael Sobell House, said: "Thanks to donations like this, we can ensure residents and their families continue to feel supported when they come into the hospice."
