A safer way to help a local hospice
A children’s hospice in Somerset is the latest charity to benefit from a scheme at Hinkley Point C that encourages team members to look after the safety of themselves and others.
Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) will get £50 for every day safety targets are met and £3,000 for every month the goals are achieved. The donations are part of a safety scheme called the HPC Way Safe Day Initiative, which promotes safer ways of working at the site. One of the safety targets encourages Hinkley Point C team members to be good neighbours when out and about in the community.
Laura Roberston, Area Fundraiser at CHSW, said: “We are extremely grateful to staff at Hinkley Point C for nominating CHSW. This is a wonderful donation to receive in the charity’s 30th anniversary year.
“Our care teams – including at our Charlton Farm hospice in Somerset – have continued to provide vital lifeline support to local families facing unimaginable challenges throughout the pandemic.
“They have only been able to do this thanks to the generosity of the local community, and this donation will help ensure they can continue to be there for families and help them to make the most of short and precious lives.”
