Cheques have gone out to seven charities this month, from Wessex Archaeology offices around the UK.
This Christmas, Wessex Archaeology continued its now annual practice of sending Christmas e-cards to our friends, partners and clients in place of traditional paper cards. This enabled us to donate the money saved to seven charities nominated by our different departments and regional offices. The charities selected were the RNLI, Mind, Salisbury Hospice, Bristol & Wales Cat Rescue, Shelter Cymru, Scottish Fisherman’s Trust and Kent Search & Rescue.
We are delighted to be able to support these worthy organisations that operate in our local communities, and we are confident that our donations will be put to good use.
Rachel Turnbull, Fundraising Officer for Salisbury Hospice Charity said:
“Salisbury Hospice Charity is hugely grateful to everyone at Wessex Archaeology for their generous donation. We need to raise over £1.5 million every year to ensure that the Hospice’s essential services can continue. This is only made possible by the sustained support and generous donations we receive from people like you, all of which are vital to our funds. Money donated locally is spent locally with the aim of improving the quality of life of our patients and their families and friends.”
