“Chari-tea” Time for SWWIC

YU6E2201A cheque for £1000 was presented by South West Women In Construction (SWWIC) to Emma Lloyd, Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW), Head of Fundraising (West) at a special high-tea event held in the historic setting of Saltram House in Plymouth.  This donation is to go towards the Precious Lives Appeal for a total of £6 million pounds required to build a hospice in Cornwall.  The Charity has been providing care and respite to families from across the South West of England for over 13 years, firstly at Little Bridge House, North Devon, and more recently at Charlton Farm, North Somerset. Expert care is provided for children whose life-expectancy may be brief and for their families.

YU6E2195Each year SWWIC concentrates on organising a variety of social fundraising events to raise money for charitable causes.  The tea party, organised by local South West Women in Construction group SWWIC, was the latest in a series of events to raise funds for CHSW.

Emma Lloyd said: “The support from SWWIC has been fantastic and their wonderful gift will help continue our support for life-limited children and their families in the region.”

Lucy George-Foster, Chair of SWWIC said “This charity means so much to us. We are delighted to have raised a substantial sum at a time when purse strings are generally being pulled tighter. Our members are construction professionals, working extremely hard at the moment but many also have young families which makes this charity so relevant. We are grateful that they have taken time out to support SWWIC and CHSW”.
