Search in Leeds partners with Martin House Hospice for CSR Initiative
Search in Leeds has teamed up with local Children’s Hospice, Martin House as part of their annual CSR campaign.
Martin House is a children’s hospice that provides complimentary care and support to local children and young people across the Yorkshire region, who suffer with a life-limiting condition, and their families. The charity aims to provide a home from home environment and families can use any mix of a wide range of services, including planned respite care, symptom control, terminal care and bereavement support. They also offer care and support to families in their own home.
Search has committed to participating in charitable initiatives to assist the hospice in active fundraising, volunteer care for residents and improvement of facilities. The team from our Leeds office successfully organised a clothes collection for the Hospice in January, with numerous other events taking place throughout the year, including consultants taking part in pink collar boxing, 10k runs and cycling challenges.
The partnership was formed in December 2016, with the aim to work alongside the charity all throughout 2017. The move comes as both organisations are due to celebrate their 30th birthday this year. Through these initiatives, Search has managed to raise approximately £1000 already towards the foundation.
Amy Proctor, Divisional Manager for Search Hospitality & Catering in Leeds, said: “Given that Search and Martin House are both long-standing members of the community, it is a great opportunity to support the affected families of our region through this partnership. I have close friends who have lost children to life-limiting conditions, so this cause is very important to me, and I know that everyone in the Leeds office is behind raising funds for this worthy cause that helps so many in our local community.“
