Young’s Seafood provide a better night’s sleep for patients and visitors
Patients can rest easy knowing their relatives are close by thanks to a donation from Young’s Seafood.
Joint consultative group members at the Marsden Road factory donated £250 which will go towards buying a sofa bed for the family room in the Amethyst unit at the Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital.
Lauren Alexander, community champion for The Health Tree Foundation (HTF), the hospital’s charity, said: “The sofa bed will allow relatives to sleep over while their family member receives treatment.
“This donation will help us provide improved comfort for family members visiting the Amethyst unit. We are extremely grateful to Young’s Seafood for their donation.”
Employees at the Marsden Road factory are able to nominate a charity each month for the business to make a donation to. Alan Gibson, team coordinator for the defrost department, put forward the idea for the money to go towards the Amethyst unit.
Out of work Alan is a member of the FOS Scooter Alliance, which has also been fundraising for the unit. He said: “I am overjoyed that my workplace has donated money to the hospital. The alliance has been raising money after one of the member’s wives received treatment on the unit.”
Young’s seafood site director Terry Tuplin said: “We find the nominations put forward always have a personal connection and are close to people’s hearts. This makes the donations even more important."
