Thorite hands over £1,000 cheque to Forget Me Not charity

A Bradford company handed over a cheque for more than a £1,000 to a charity after its fundraising efforts in aid of the organisation last year.  Staff at Thorite baked cakes, dressed up daft, and fired up the barbecue in a year of fundraising for Huddersfield-based Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice.

The compressed air and fluid power specialists picked the group as their 2023 charity and handed over £1,216, which came from money-raising efforts across all Thorite’s sales and service centres, including those in Bradford, Leeds, and Sheffield.  Forget Me Not provides expert clinical care, respite, therapy, days out, memory-making, end-of-life care, and bereavement support to children with life-shortening conditions, and their families, across West Yorkshire.  It relies heavily on charitable donations to support its work.

Presenting the cheque to Masood Ahmed, of Forget Me Not, at Thorite’s Bradford headquarters, Managing Director, Stephen Wright, said: “We were delighted to do our bit to support the charity’s important work with children and families who are facing the toughest of life’s challenges.”

Masood Ahmed said: “It’s great when colleagues come together to raise funds to help us continue and build on our work and we’d like to say a big thank you to everyone at Thorite for their fund-raising efforts.”

Thorite has chosen the Alzheimer’s Society to benefit from its fund-raising efforts this year after a company-wide vote.
