Here at VS Group, we always strive to give back to the charities that we work with and assist with the important work that they do. It is finally time for us to share our August Charity of the Month and we are very excited to announce that it’s the incredibly deserving Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.
The Sheffield-based charity supports hundreds of families in the local area, helping children and young-adults with life-threatening and life-shortening conditions. VS Group have worked with Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice for several years now and as our way of saying thank you for their loyalty and recognising the amazing work that they do for people in the local community, we will be awarding them with a grant to cover the cost of their calls, until July 2018, to the value of £8,000.00.
This week, VS Group Managing Director, Kevin Penman went to Bluebell Wood to meet some of the staff and learn more about the charity’s work.
Kevin Penman, said : “We have been involved with Bluebell Wood for several years now and I have personally visited a number of times and met the wonderful staff. We really believe in the amazing work that Bluebell Wood does. My late mother was passionate about contributing to good causes, particularly those that help children and people less fortunate, and this passion has been passed on to me. It is something that is close to my heart and it’s a pleasure to be helping such a deserving charity”.
Kevin, will be undertaking a self-funded Kilimanjaro climb to raise money for good causes, including Bluebell Wood, Forever Manchester and Macmillan Cancer Care. He has already begun the gruelling training process, which has been documented on social media and the VS Group blog.
VS Group’s Head of Technical Engineering, Jim Yelland, said : “I worked on upgrading Bluebell Wood’s telephony system last year and the staff are incredibly wonderful. As with all of the charities that we work with, we want to go above and beyond to ensure that they have the best possible experience to assist them with the amazing work that they are doing.”
