Charity Partnership 2016-2018 - Julia's House
We are excited to announce Together for Short Lives as our new charity partner for the next two years.
Together for Short Lives supports all the professionals, children’s palliative care services and children’s hospices that deliver lifeline care to children and families across the UK. .
Lucinda Gray, sixth-generation Woodhouse family member and Hall & Woodhouse Charity Champion, commented: “As a company that places community at the heart of our business, supporting worthy causes is very important to Hall & Woodhouse. The incredible work of Together for Short Lives touches so many lives and helps so many families, so we are proud to have so many of our public houses backing the campaign.
“Having raised a phenomenal £248,000 for Macmillan in 2013 and 2014, I know our team and guests will do everything we can to exceed that amount over the next two years.”
Commenting on the partnership, Caroline Attreed at Julia’s House said: “Julia’s House could not exist without the support of the local community. Our charity relies on public funding for almost every penny we need to raise. We are really excited about this partnership with Hall & Woodhouse through its public houses. It will be a great way to spread the word about our work and encourage local people to help the families and children we care for.”.”
