Here are some of our recent Foundation projects.
We’ve joined Lister Hospital’s ‘Pony Club’ to help spread a little joy to patients and staff.
Together with Bauder Flat Roofs, GRM Roofing Co Ltd and Pexhurst Services Limited, CWG Group Ltd are proud supporters of the East and North Hertfordshire Hospitals’ Charity in order to to fund therapy pony visits at Lister Hospital for a whole year.
The therapeutically trained pony visits bring much needed stress relief and joy to patients and staff alike who spend most of their time within the confines of hospital. James Utting of Bauder said: “It has been my pleasure to bring together what I have cheekily named the ‘Pony Club’ – a collective of charity-orientated businesses who are all passionate about giving back in their local community. The therapy pony service, organised by the hospital charity, ticks every single box when it comes to making a difference to those in need and I think I speak on behalf of all the businesses on how proud we all are to be partners. Having seen first-hand how much joy the ponies bring to patients when they arrive on the ward, it’s wonderful to know that our funding will spread even more smiles at our local hospital.”
Chris Grint said: “Supporting the funding of therapy ponies at Lister Hospital is not just a charitable act for us at CWG Group; it’s a heartfelt commitment to the well-being of our community. At CWG Group, we believe in nurturing the places we call home, and Stevenage holds a special place in our hearts.”
Bethany McNeil, Head of Public Fundraising at the East and North Herts Hospitals Charity added: “It costs £200 to fund a single pony visit and the team visit the wards – both adult and children’s wards – every three weeks. Thanks to incredible businesses and supporters donating to the service, the charity are able to fund the visits all year“.
