Roxwell, Essex (PRWEB UK) 27 May 2011
HotSpring World, the leading supplier of hot tubs and spas throughout the UK has been working extra hard to make this spring a great one for poorly children with a range of charity fund-raising activities at its network of hot tub showrooms across the country.
Throughout March and April, HotSpring World has been raising money for Make-A-Wish Foundation® UK, a charity which makes wishes come true for children facing life-threatening illnesses. Wishes granted in the past have ranged from meeting sporting heroes and celebrities to dream days out, such as a day as a princess or driving a tank.
The company made a donation to the charity for every HotSpring model hot tub sold during March and April through its network of showrooms. This week, HotSpring World's Lynda Smart presented a cheque for a staggering £8,100 to Make-A-Wish at the company's Weybridge showroom.
Karen England, director of fundraising for Make-A-Wish, said, "We're delighted to be a partner of HotSpring® World and it's fantastic that they raised over £8,000 from their spa promotion. This will help us grant magical wishes for children fighting life-threatening illnesses. We really value their support."
That's not the only charity work the company has been doing lately. The staff of their Nottingham showroom recently ran an Easter Egg collection for the patients at Nottingham Children's Hospital, part of the Queens Medical Centre, and continues to collect donations and raise money for the hospital.
Penny Headland, HotSpring World Nottingham's Manager said, “We are still collecting for the hospital as they are trying to raise money for mobile oxygen saturation machines which cost £300-£400 each. They also have a wish list that includes play items, arts and craft materials and music CDs and DVDs. Anyone wishing to make further donations can do so via the showroom and we will see that it gets to the childrens hospital charity.”
Jenny Wing, Community and Events Fundraiser for the Nottingham University Hospitals Charity said to the staff at Hotspring World Nottingham, “I would like to thank you for choosing the Children’s Hospital as your Charity of the Year.”
HotSpring World places a high priority on being a good corporate citizen and takes its social responsibility very seriously. This culture of giving permeates the whole organisation, and all the staff at HotSpring World are committed to raising money for charity alongside their business. They plan to continue to support Make-A-Wish, Nottingham Children's Hospital and many more worthy causes in the future.
