There are times in business when it’s about taking stock – looking at what you’ve achieved and how you can make a difference.
At Glossop Cartons we don’t limit that to our own business actions and industry sector. As a local family run company we encourage our team to talk about issues, charitable organisations and activities we can work with and support to make a difference.
It is taking stock and being thankful that has led us to a long term collaboration with Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.
Our support for the hospital isn’t just about paying it forward for charity – it’s also about paying back. Within the team, many of our own children have benefitted from the care and expertise provided by the excellent services of the medical teams at one of the UK’s largest and busiest facilities. During times of life changing childhood illnesses and serious riding accidents when our children were toddlers and school children, the diligence and care of nursing staff saw our families through difficult and stressful times.
Our children may have grown up – but our support and appreciation for Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital continues. We are proud to have spearheaded a number of charity initiatives over the years to support the hospital, which recently saw us gifting 5,500 donation cartons to support the charity’s fundraising efforts across the whole of the North West. Working with our materials partner Varsity Packaging who kindly donated the carton board we provided the charity with branded collection cartons. Look around the hospital and throughout our local communities and you’ll spot our boxes capturing people’s attention- raising awareness and helping raise funds to support the hospital’s life changing work.
Penny Hamer, Senior Corporate Fundraising Manager at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity said:
“We’re incredibly thankful for Glossop Cartons’ donation box initiative. Keeping the hospital in the hearts and minds of the public, patients and staff is a crucial element of our fundraising. Glossop Cartons’ continued support in providing so many cartons plays a significant role in that. The personal links the family has with the hospital makes it even more heartfelt.”
Vicky Every, marketing and commercial manager at Glossop Cartons, added:
“We’re proud and humbled that our donation boxes are playing such an important role in encouraging support for the hospital. And in doing our bit to support Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity we’re making a difference now and in the future – helping to ensure that the excellent service and care we received is there for our children’s children’s generation too.”
