Hamper 2021Northern Powergrid, the company that manages the electricity network that powers everyday life for 8 million people, has offered hospices a helping hand when it comes to vital fundraising this festive season.

The electricity network operator, which is powering homes, businesses, hospitals and communities throughout the pandemic, has donated 40 hampers to hospices across the North East, Yorkshire and northern Lincolnshire.

Siobhan Barton, Northern Powergrid’s Head of Stakeholder Relations, said: “These hospices provide vital care across our region. We wanted to give something back this Christmas to the hospices in the communities that our people live and work in – and support charities and other key workers who are doing an incredible job in these challenging times.

“Many of our donated hampers are used as part of hospice fundraising raffles and some can raise as much as £1,000.  It’s always lovely to hear that, through our initial donation and the support of the local community, hospices have been able to generate extra funds to go towards the outstanding work they do to support local people when they need it most.”
