Porter Dodson raise money for Yeovil Hospital Charity

Yeovil charity, Yeovil Hospital Charity, has been presented with a cheque by Porter Dodson.

Employees at the Yeovil office held regular fundraising events and activities, such as bake sales, cream teas and participated in the Yeovil Abseil Challenge at the hospital, to raise money, which was then match funded by the Partners to bring the total to £1,702.73.

Yeovil Hospital Charity pays for improvements to facilities and services at Yeovil Hospital, making things easier for patients at what is often a difficult time. As the hospital’s official charity, they are able to make a difference for patients by using donations from the public to fund new equipment and new developments at the hospital.

James Kirton, Head of Fundraising, said: “This donation from Porter Dodson towards our new Special Care Baby Unit will make a real difference for local families whose babies have to spend time on the Special Care Baby Unit. The unit looks after children who are born too early and those who are born unwell. It is an upsetting time for parents but thanks to support from local organisations like Porter Dodson, we have been able to develop a new unit, which is twice the size of the old unit. These funds from Porter Dodson will be used to buy much needed new equipment for the new unit.”

Victoria Walker, Porter Dodson’s Yeovil Office Head, said: “I’m delighted we’ve been able raise this money to help Yeovil Hospital Charity with their fundraising efforts in improving the Special Baby Care Unit, which does a fantastic job helping local families. I’d like to thank everyone who took part and donated in the various activities and events that we organised over the year.”
