Edge Transport goes all out to support local Hospice
Top distribution and warehousing company in the North West of the UK help to raise awareness of an important charity, supporting the Hospice of the Good Shepherd in Chester.
Edge Transport have made quite an impact on their customers over the years, providing them with a high quality and reliable distribution and storage service. This year, Edge Transport and its employees have gone the extra mile, quite literally, to support their local Hospice of the Good Shepherd.
To help raise long-term awareness, Edge Transport have invested in a new box trailer and has customised it with the Hospice branding. The trailer will be used to transport Westbridge Furniture Designs sofas all across the UK, where it will be seen by millions of people, offering maximum exposure for this very worthy cause.
The Hospice of the Good Shepherd is a residential and day care service for adults with incurable life limiting illnesses in Cheshire, providing much needed support to the families of those in need. Due to rather personal circumstances, this charity is one that is very close to the hearts of Edge Transport employees.
Jonathan Edge, Managing Director of Edge Transport, explains why the Hospice means so much to the company and its employees:
“You never know when you might need the care of a place such as the Hospice of the Good Shepherd. Sadly, two members of our family have required palliative care from the Hospice in the past, and we know how much the family relied on their support. The Hospice needs over £2.5 million each year to be able to offer support to those who need it the most, and everyone at Edge Transport wants to do all we can to make sure this happens.”
Last month,15 members of the Edge team also took part in the Rough Runner 10k event in Manchester. Well known for its gruelling conditions, as well as the impressive running distance, the team made it to the finish line smiling and were able to raise nearly £3,500 for the Hospice.
