The VEKA UK Group, one of Burnley’s biggest local employers, has raised £4230 for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Burnley General Hospital.
This amount was raised by the staff of the industry-leading PVC-U profile manufacturer over a six-month period in a variety of ways. Much of the money was raised through cake sales, sponsorship for the VEKA Team at the Manchester and Burnley 10k races plus a collection at the Network VEKA AGM.
Gabriela Hammond, Head of Human Resources at VEKA plc explains: “We’re very proud to have raised this amount of money for such a valuable cause. The Neonatal Unit is a state-of-the-art facility that provides treatments and services that can make a crucial difference to babies that are born prematurely or with complications and illness. The support offered to these families is invaluable and we know all the doctors and nurses work incredibly hard.”
The team from the Neonatal unit were quick to thank the staff of The VEKA UK Group: “We were so amazed by the wonderful amount of money you all raised for our First Link Fund. It is truly a fantastic amount and we feel so privileged you chose our fund to contribute to. It is invaluable to us to have the support of local companies such as yourselves.”
