Christmas is upon us and once again, Guardian have decided to partake in a few of charitable events; two of which are fast becoming a ‘Guardian tradition’. Giving back to local charities is extremely important to us and as the company grows, our ability to give back to the local community should be reflected. Throughout 2017, staff at Guardian have gone above and beyond raising funds for various charities including, the Children’s Hospital Charity, Macmillan Cancer Support & Cash for Kid’s Mission Christmas.
Children’s Hospital Charity
Being regular supporters of the Children’s Hospital Charity, we are extremely happy to sponsor a snow flake which is adorned on the main building of the Sheffield Children’s Hospital throughout the festive period. This year the money will go towards purchasing special medical equipment as mentioned below by the charity:
Monies from the display have helped the charity finish funding a liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometer – the gold standard for the diagnosis of vitamin D deficiency. Tchad Western, Corporate Partnerships Manager said ‘The machine will be used by the ‘behind the scenes’ Clinical Chemistry team at the hospital who are just one of the vital supporting teams that keep the hospital as a national leader in its specialisms.’
Cash for Kid’s Mission Christmas
Every year the staff at Guardian Electrical purchase gifts and donate them to the less fortunate children around the UK. A quote from the website reveals its success:
In 2016 the appeal generated upwards of £15.5 million in gifts and donations which were distributed to more than 360,000 disadvantaged kids across the UK.
Mission Christmas works closely with social workers, head teachers and the emergency services who will nominate families in crisis to be supported by the appeal. This year the tradition has carried on and staff at Guardian have been as generous as ever. Gifts for all ages have already been taken to Hallam FM ready for distribution over Christmas.
