Bracknell-based pioneer in cloud communications solutions, Redwood Technologies Group, becomes a founding champion of the new Thames Hospice currently under construction by Bray Lake in Maidenhead.
Thames Hospice is a charity providing vital care and support to people across Berkshire and South Buckinghamshire facing a life-limiting illness. Redwood Technologies Group’s donation will help fund the charity’s project to build a new, larger state-of-the-art hospice to support even more local people.
The Group’s donation was made through the Berkshire Community Foundation (BCF), a charity dedicated to helping individuals and businesses looking to achieve their Corporate Social Responsibility and Philanthropic goals by supporting local charities and non-profit organisations.
Construction of the new £22 million community hospice started at the beginning of this year and will be completed by the summer of 2020. Thames Hospice’s Raise the Roof appeal aims to raise £3 million in donations towards the project, which will ensure that every local family can access the hospice care and support they desperately need.
Sean Taylor, CEO of Redwood Technologies Group, commented: “The work that Thames Hospice is doing is vital for our community, and will ensure that people who need at very vulnerable points can access high-quality support. Redwood Technologies Group is very pleased to be able to help them with this important project.”
Sarah Bissell, Director of Fundraising and Marketing at Thames Hospice, said: “We are incredibly grateful for the donation made by Redwood Technologies Group. We’re building our new hospice to ensure that every local family facing a life-limited illness is able to access the care they urgently need. Donations like this means that we can help a further 2,500 people every year in our hospice and out in the community.”
