Premierline staff are allocated 20-hours volunteer time each year which means team members are able to use normal working hours to volunteer to help a cause which is important to them. A number of the Premierline team opted to volunteer some time to assist St. John’s Hospice with the set up and launch of their new shop, accumulating almost 110 hours of volunteer time in the process.
Stuart Darroch, Managing Director at Premierline commented:
“Involvement in local community causes is so important to everyone at Premierline and that’s why we were extremely proud to have been invited by St. John’s Hospice to not only take part in their 50-50 500 challenge, but also to assist with the opening of their new shop and to visit the incredible staff and patients at the hospice site.
It’s been fantastic to see everyone at Premierline come together to support this cause and I am truly thankful for the effort that each individual has put into this challenge. I’m proud to be able to say we’ve raised over £4,500 for the local hospice and now I am sure that this is a cause we can continue to support through the Premierline volunteer hours scheme for many more years to come!”
St. John’s Hospice have thanked all the local businesses who took part in this year's charity challenge, adding:
“We would just like to send a huge well done and an even bigger thank you for getting involved in this year’s charity challenge. Premierline have really made an impact on the services and support we can provide for our patients and their loved ones.
The entire team have really enjoyed keeping up with everything Premierline have been doing with the social media updates. We are glad to see they love cake just as much as us nurses!”
