At Vospers we are proud to announce that we have raised a total of £6,271.00 in charitable donations in 2022. This is without mentioning the awareness and money raised by our individual staff!
“As a family business we are passionate about supporting our local communities, so I am extremely proud of our employees who continued fundraising despite the challenges of the pandemic.” Peter Vosper
Our biggest charity event of the year had to be our annual golf day at Trevose Golf Club, which accounts for £3,600 of out total money raised. This money went to Cornwall Hospice, Peninsula Medical Foundation and St Luke’s Hospice.
Penny Hannah, Head of Fundraising at St Luke’s Hospice, said: “When we heard the news that we had been chosen as one of the charities benefitting from the funds raised at the Vospers golf day we were absolutely delighted.
Penny continued: “This kind and helpful donation will go a long way to supporting more local families at the most difficult time in their lives and when it matters most. From our friendly doctors, caring nurses through to all the support staff and hardworking volunteers we would like to pass on our sincere thanks to Peter Vosper and friends for their generosity and helping us during these challenging times.”
Denis Wilkins from the Peninsula Medical Foundation also talked about what the donation from Vospers will be used for, he said: “The money raised will help fund research by Professor Hanneman’s Brain Tumour Research team in Plymouth, which is being applied to the treatment of patients in Derriford’s neurosurgical unit. Thank you Vospers and your generous supporters.”
Giving back to the community is something that is highly valued at Vospers and we are proud of our staff and our company for dedicating so much of their time and money to raise money for a variety of noble causes. It is clear this work supports the hard work and dedication of those working for these charities.
