Beatson Clark gives generously to Rotherham hospices

11th March 2019

Carers at two Rotherham hospices are celebrating after each received a generous donation from Beatson Clark, one of the town’s oldest businesses.

The glass manufacturer, which has been making glass bottles and jars on Greasbrough Road since 1751, has donated £6,000 each Rotherham Hospice and Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.

The money will go towards the day-to-day running costs of the two hospices.

Rotherham Hospice on Broom Road provides care for people with illnesses and people nearing the end of their life, while Bluebell Wood cares for children and young adults facing a terminal illness, both in their own homes and at the hospice in North Anston.

Daniel Wales, events and community fundraiser at Rotherham Hospice, said: “Rotherham Hospice provides vital care for anyone with a life-limiting illness within the Metropolitan Borough of Rotherham.

“Whether this is here at the hospice or via our Hospice at Home services, we are there for those who need us the most. All our services are completely free of charge and to keep caring for people we need to raise £2.7m a year.

“This is why we are forever grateful to companies such as Beatson Clark for their generous donations and support which enable us to continue providing this vital care and making a real difference to people’s lives.”
