Branston raises over £12k for charity

Branston’s Lincoln site presented a cheque to the Lincoln branch of Sands, the stillbirth and neonatal death charity, for £12,219.35. The charity we’re chosen by staff at the Lincoln site as charity of the year for 2015, and the donation is the result of employees hard work throguhtout the year.

Over £8,000 of the total came from a grueling 100-mile cycle ride through the Lincolnshire Wolds undertaken by 12 of the Branston team in September, starting and ending at the Lincoln site.

As well as the Branston big cycle, money was raised by various activities throughout the year such as cake sales, cream teas and Christmas raffles, all contributing to the final donation. All staff got behind the events, providing a range of baked goodies for the fundraisers!

James Truscott, Managing Director, stated: “We are thrilled to have been able to raise this much money for such a worthy cause. All our fundraising events have been thoroughly enjoyed by everyone at Branston and knowing that we are helping the local community makes it even better. The challenge now is finding a way to do even more this year!”

Each year the Branston business supports different local charities with donations making lasting differences to the wider community.

Di Sykes, Chair Lincoln Sands added: “Lincoln Sands is immensely grateful to everyone at Branston Ltd for their fund raising efforts in 2015. Our parent members know only too well how precious the brief time they are able to spend with their little one is before saying Goodbye. The maternity wards at Pilgrim Hospital, Boston, do not have a dedicated room for bereaved parents, unlike Lincoln Maternity Unit. We hope to help create some quiet and private space for parents with the monies donated, and will be approaching staff at Boston to discuss this possibility.

We continue to support Lincoln Maternity Unit, with funding for replacing items in the parentsʼ room, and will be supplying Sands Memory Boxes to the hospitals as needed”

Branston staff have selected Lincolnshire Integrated Voluntary Emergency Services (LIVES) as their chosen charity for 2016 to support the lifesaving work they undertake in responding to emergencies throughout Lincolnshire.
