A former Scunthorpe business man is helping to keep patients, staff and visitors safe at Lindsey Lodge thanks to the generous donation of a hand sanitising station, after selecting the Hospice as his brand new company’s chosen charity.
Mark Bennett of North Yorkshire-based media and design company Paper Aeroplane Solutions Ltd and new Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) specialist Henosis, visited the Burringham Road Hospice with Dad Bob to hand over the bespoke sanitising station to Lindsey Lodge Chief Executive Karen Griffiths, to say thank you for the support the Hospice gave to Mum Brenda, who passed away there in 2015.
Mark said: “Lindsey Lodge provided outstanding care for my Mum and our family – from the nurses to the cleaners, all the staff were so kind, they truly are like angels to everyone in their care.
“Ever since Mum passed away, Dad has done as much as he can to support the Hospice, so we’re delighted to be able to donate something which can be put to such good use in keeping people safe during these difficult times.”
He added: “My company Henosis has won some significant contracts to provide specialist branded PPE to a whole host of sectors including the Premiership, schools, universities, theatres and pharmacies and some of our biggest clients are willing to make a donation to charity for every mask, so we are very hopeful and excited that we can support Lindsey Lodge going forward as a charity partner.”
Lindsey Lodge Chief Executive Karen Griffiths said: “During the Covid-19 pandemic, we have had to significantly change our ways of working, both here at the Hospice and in our retail and fundraising activities.
“Never before has PPE, hand sanitisation and cleaning been so important in keeping everyone safe, so we are extremely grateful to Mark and Bob for their wonderful support.”
