Local staff raise £440 for Kemp Hospice in Kidderminster
Caring staff and their families at construction and engineering specialist Stepnell in Mill Street, Kidderminster, have raised £440 for KEMP Hospice at a charity football match.
The family-fun football event at Wolverley Church of England Secondary School in Wolverley is part of the firm’s national drive to raise money for local charities where it operates during its 150th business anniversary celebrations.
KEMP Hospice in Mason Road, Kidderminster, offers specialist care and support to patients, families and carers dealing with life-limiting illness and bereavement in the Wyre Forest community. Hospice care is free for everyone, and is provided for however long it is needed.
“KEMP Hospice is a wonderful, caring place which does so much to bring comfort and support to people in our community nearing the end of their lives and their families, carers and friends,” says Tony Scrocca, project manager at Stepnell, who organised the charity football match. “We wanted to do something to help the hospice which costs £1 million a year to run and is 70 per cent funded by donations from local supporters in the community. We are delighted we could contribute the money we raised to this very worthy cause.”
