As an initiative for Christmas 2021, we were delighted to be supporting CHUF - the Children’s Heart Unit Fund by enabling their customers to make a donation to this North East charity whilst still making a saving on every purchase.
This amazing charity recently moved offices to Gateshead, just around the corner from the Spicers of Hythe facility. After such a tough couple of years for everyone, we were looking for a way to give back to the North East community this year, and CHUF was the natural choice.
CHUF supports children and their families who are receiving treatment at the Children’s Heart Unit based in the Freeman Hospital and the many other hospitals providing care for cardiac patients throughout the North of England. This includes everything from essential equipment and specialist nurses to ice cream van visits and clown doctors. They also work extremely hard every year to ensure that Christmas is as special for all the families they support, whether that’s providing gifts and a visit from Santa’s reindeer to those in the hospital, or funding technical equipment that enables children to spend time at home over the festive period.
We created a special offer, exclusively for North East business, to make a donation to CHUF whilst still saving money on their corporate hampers during the Christmas period of 2021. With your support, we raised over £5,000 to make a real difference for CHUF’s Heart Heroes and their families.
