Seymour Civil Engineering, on Hartlepool Marina, has boosted the coffers of Hartlepool & District Hospice on dozens of occasions through a number of campaigns over the years.
And now the firm has taken its support to another level by signing up to the charity’s corporate adoption scheme, which will involve organising a number of events and fundraising activities every year.
Kevin Byrne, the company’s managing director, said: “Seymour has been based in Hartlepool for more than 35 years and employs a large amount of people from the local area. We wanted to focus our support on a local charity and after visiting the hospice and seeing first hand the amazing work they do for the community, it was the obvious choice.”
Carol Sennett, corporate fundraiser at the hospice, said: “Seymour have been key supporters of the hospice for many years and we are delighted that the work we do for the local community has been the inspiration for this.”
Seymour’s staff have already kickstarted their fundraising ideas and are in the process of organising a ball to be held in the summer. Hospice bosses say the support and generosity of companies such as Seymour will help to ensure the hospice’s vital work can continue.
