Civil engineering and groundwork specialist Rudridge will be raising funds and delivering Christmas gifts to four children’s hospices during the festive season.

The company’s branches based at Brentford, Farnham, Gravesend and Horsham will be undertaking a range of different fundraising activities during November on behalf of Shooting Star Chase Children’s Hospice in Hampton, Middlesex; Naomi House & Jacksplace in Winchester, Hampshire; Demelza in Sittingbourne, Kent and Chestnut Tree House in Arundel, West Sussex. All proceeds raised will be shared equally among the charities.

Proceeds for Shooting Star Chase Children’s Hospice and Naomi House & Jacksplace will go towards purchasing and delivering a range of different Christmas presents for children at the respective hospices. Funds raised on behalf of Demelza in Sittingbourne, Kent and Chestnut Tree House in Arundel, West Sussex will go directly to the charities.

Alan Betteridge, director at Rudridge, said: “We are hoping to raise as much money as possible for our chosen charities. They are all extremely worthwhile causes that do a great deal for their local communities – we are very proud to be supporting them.”
