Harrison Beale & Owen donates over one hundred Easter Eggs to UHCW charity
8th April 2019
Staff from Harrison Beale & Owen (HB&O) have rallied together to collect over one hundred Easter Eggs to donate to the University Hospitals Coventry & Warwickshire (UHCW) Charity.
The UHCW Charity supports staff, patients and family members, providing funding for important equipment, pioneering research and all the important extras which fall outside the remit of the NHS. The charity covers both UHCW Hospital and the Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership Trust and supports the full range of routine and specialist services, including cancer, cardiac, trauma and children’s’ services as well as the trust’s broad spectrum of ground breaking research.
The chocolate treats donated by HB&O will help the charity in two ways. Firstly, UHCW Charity is hosting an Easter Egg Hunt fundraiser which will be raising money for research within the hospital. Secondly, as an annual tradition, the hospital hosts an Egg Run on Easter Sunday, where eggs are handed out to patients that are spending the holiday on the ward.
Lisa Harrison-Byrne, Community and Events Fundraiser for UHCW Charity said: “We are overwhelmed by the donation from HB&O. Not only will the Easter Eggs put a smile on the patients’ faces on Easter Day, they will also allow us to raise more money at our Easter Egg Hunt, supporting vital research projects at UHCW. We’d like to extend a huge thank you to HB&O for their generosity!”
