Analox People have once again demonstrated their generosity through charity, donating their time away from the office for a day to help raise funds for poorly babies and infants this Christmas.
Zoë’s Place, with one of three branches based locally in Normanby, Middlesbrough, provides palliative, respite and end-of-life care to babies and infants.
A Wish Tree was set up in the Cleveland Centre to catch Christmas shoppers to ask them for a small donation, as the charity is independent and fully reliant on public support.
Michelle Wilson (Marketing Manager) and Lucy Dowling (Repairs and Service Supervisor) keen personal supporters of the charity, put themselves forward to stand in the centre to take donations.
Michelle said: “Each year, there are a wide range of charities for our staff to choose from. Lucy and I chose Zoe’s Place because we are personally drawn to the charity, being aware of all of the hard work they do for poorly children.”
The charity days give Analox employees the chance to take one paid day each year to go and support a local charity that means something to them.
The money raised will go directly into funding Zoe’s Place and the service it provides, such as supporting families and treating sick infants and babies.
For a small donation, members of the public could add a Christmas wish to the tree, which were often warm messages of support from caring local people.
Lucy added: “I loved being able to help out Zoe’s Place in raising funds for the care they provide.”
Members of the public are invited to nominate their own charities for consideration, whether that may be an animal shelter, environmental inititative or human-focused charities just like Zoe’s Place.
