Ramsden International donate £3,000 to St Andrew’s Hospice, Grimsby.

Published on 22 March 2017

Global food exporter Ramsden International donated £3,000 to St Andrew’s Hospice in Grimsby, to fund the valuable palliative care they provide. Employees at Ramsden International wanted to make a difference to a local charity which is close to where they live and work, and St Andrew’s Hospice was chosen to be the first beneficiary of their Making a Difference Locally fund.

Ramsden International’s main supplier of the products it sells is Nisa who are based in Scunthorpe. Nisa is owned by its members, of which Ramsden is one. Working in partnership with its suppliers, Nisa negotiate funds for its charity, “Making a Difference Locally” or “MADL” for short. The funds are used to support any worthy cause from local sports teams, children’s homes or in this case, St Andrews Hospice, which was chosen by Ramsden’s employees to be the first beneficiary of the fund.

Jane Whenham-White, Head of Income Generation & Marketing at St Andrew’s Hospice visited Ramsden International to receive the cheque for £3,000. She explained how the money would benefit the hospice: “Our patients are encouraged to be as independent as possible, and they tell us how they want to be cared for. Our services don’t stop there. We provide support and advice at home, offer complementary therapies, family support, a monthly carers’ group, counselling and more. This donation from Ramsden International really does mean so much, and helps us continue to make each day count for those we look after.”

Sean Ramsden, CEO of Ramsden International commented; “As a family business firmly rooted in the Grimsby area, Ramsden International is delighted to support St Andrew’s Hospice and the valuable work they do there, and we hope to continue our partnership together in the future.”
