Triton Showers Team Springs into Action to Raise £3,300 for Local Children’s Hospice
Employees at Triton Showers have run, walked and cycled to raise vital funds for Zoë’s Place Baby Hospice, as part of an ongoing partnership with the charity.
The Triton team participated in a range of heart-raising activities over a two-month period, including stretching it out with yoga and working up a sweat with HIIT sessions. For every mile travelled or 15 minutes spent exercising, Triton pledged to donate a set amount to Coventry based Zoë’s Place, which offers crucial respite to families with babies and infants who are battling life-limiting or threatening conditions.
After just a couple of energetic months, colleagues at the shower manufacturer raised an impressive amount, increasing the company’s fundraising total to £2,800 for 2021. Furthermore, Triton kindly agreed to make an additional donation, so that the grand total would cover the cost of a day’s care.
The money collected will support the Zoë’s Place ‘Pay for a Day’ campaign, whereby it takes approximately £3,300 to deliver a full day of care. Triton was one of the first companies to sign up to the scheme which was introduced to help dedicated nurses at the hospice get back to the same level of aid they used to be able to provide, seven days a week, before the first national lockdown.
Tina Simpson, Marketing Director at Triton Showers said: “Our collaboration with Zoë’s Place is extremely important to everyone at Triton. As a result, everyone was keen to get involved with our ‘Get Moving’ initiative in a bid to cover the cost of care for a whole day.
“We are so pleased to be able to help the hard-working professionals who play such an integral role in looking after those in the local community. The work they carry out has a huge impact on a number of families, allowing parents and guardians to have a well-earned rest, confident in the knowledge that their child is in good hands”.
Tanita Mistry, Community Fundraiser at Zoë’s Place, said “We are extremely appreciative of all the effort Triton has gone to in order to gather funds to enable us to increase the number of days we can offer specialist treatment. It means the world to us to have Triton’s continued support, and hopefully the hospice will soon be able to return to pre-lockdown service levels”.
