Beech complete RHN decorating challenge!
A group of team members from The Beech Centre spent Wednesday 15th June 2016 helping to re-decorate a patient and family room used within the Drapers Wing of The Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability.
We would like to thank JCT600 for providing transport on the day in the form of an Audi Q7.
We would also like to thank Sofology who very kindly donated two sofas for the room.
Since the spring of 2013, when we adopted the Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability (RHN) as our chosen CSR charity, we have gifted time and resource to help develop the people and the organisation. We have also undertaken sponsorship activities and have been to the hospital to see the great work done there. To give a sense of scale of the support provided, The Beech Centre has already gifted 60 days of development time since our partnership began. Following the most recent request from the RHN leadership team to ‘flood the system with Organisational Development’, The Beech Centre has committed to gift a further 40 days over the coming year. That will bring the total to 100 days of value added support which has a market value of nearly £224,000. Together with their charitable discounted rate which saved £293,000 plus our fundraising activities, this takes our overall financial contribution to the RHN £520,000. We have gifted £2880 in sponsorship raised from our activities including a sponsored bike ride, rebuilding part of The Cleveland Way and redecorating the Lodge House at the RHN which provides much needed accommodation for patients’ families and clearing Birch scrub from Heathland in the North York Moors National Park. “The scale of the support provided by The Beech Centre to the RHN is testimony to the breadth and depth of relationship between the two organisations.”
