SG Petch Darlington supports local hospice
SG Petch in Darlington has adopted St Teresa’s Hospice as one of their favourite charities for the next year.
Getting the adoption off to a grand start General Manager John Sedgwick presented David Jones (pictured above) of St Teresa’s Hospice with a cheque for £1,000.
The money was raised at the SG Petch annual golf day, which saw up to 80 people take part last year.
Thanks to the help of their suppliers SG Petch managed to source sixteen bin bags full of prizes and goodies, which were auctioned off to raise the money.
Mr Sedgwick said: “St Teresa’s Hospice is a great charity which is local to Darlington and close to our hearts.”
The adoption will see SG Petch supporting St Teresa’s Hospice throughout the year, and thy have already pledged help with a trailer for St Teresa’s Hospice’s tombola at events at Croft Circuit over the summer.
David Jones, St Teresa’s Hospice Fundraising Manager, said: “Support from businesses is especially valuable to us not just because of the practical help they can offer but also as fresh groups of people to recruit from to take part in our various events. We look forward to working with SG Petch over the coming year.”
