Huws Gray offers Helping Hand

Published:  18 December, 2015

Huws Gray’s 25th anniversary year comes to an end with a bang as organisers confirm that the company has raised £120,847 for nominated children’s hospices located around the branch network in Wales, north-west England and the Midlands.

It has been a hectic 2015 for Huws Gray as the company chose to celebrate its milestone birthday by raising funds for its nominated local children’s hospices. Over 20 events were organised throughout the year, and thanks to the support of its loyal customer base, key suppliers and enthusiastic employees, Huws Gray is delighted to have raised such an extraordinary amount to help children and their families.

Ever since the initial charity campaign announcement was made at the start of the year, everyone associated with Huws Gray has got on board, and director Andy Wagstaff is grateful for all the support received.

He said: “It’s been a hugely successful year for us, with all our anniversary celebrations and a few acquisitions towards the end of the year, 2015 is definitely a year to remember for all of us at Huws Gray. I’d like to thank all of our customers who have supported our activities, our supply chain that’s been incredible throughout the whole year, and our employees who have taken part in a wide range of activities and fantastic challenges.”

Eluned Yaxley, senior area fundraiser for Hope House Children’s Hospices, added: “We’re astounded with Huws Gray’s dedication over the course of the year with all of the activities and events. Ever since the start of the adoption in January, Huws Gray has gone the extra mile to support and raise funds for children’s hospices. We’d like to thank the whole company, they are truly a fantastic team and we’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with them in 2015. The huge amount raised by Huws Gray will help us support and care for seriously ill children and their families in to 2016 and beyond.”
