Travis Perkins’ Managed Services has donated £3000 towards a children’s playground for the Dewi Ward at Gwynedd Hospital in Bangor.
Managed Services – part of Travis Perkins plc which provides maintenance materials and supply chain planning for public sector organisations – has donated £3000 towards new playground equipment for the children’s oncology ward at Gwynedd Hospital in Bangor.
The £3000 donation was arranged by Managed Services’ Gynnedd store in conjunction with Gafael Llaw, a charity that supports children fighting cancer. It will also be used to repair existing equipment and reduce trip hazards in the playground, which has been condemned for the past two years, as well as supporting the refurbishment of the Dewi Ward.
Gafael Llaw is made up of people from the Caernarfon area and raises money to support the Dewi Ward, along with the Alder Hey Hospital in Liverpool and the children’s cancer charity Clic Sargent. Previously, Gafael Llaw completed a ‘Tour de Cymru’, which Managed Services supported with a £5,000 donation. The team cycled around Wales and raised £85,000 in total.
Andrew Craig, Project Manager at Managed Services and also a committee member of Gafael Llaw commented:
“I’m really grateful to Managed Services for supporting Gafael Llaw and Gwynedd Hospital by making this donation. It is great to be able to provide something for children to enjoy during their visits to the ward, as well as supporting refurbishment of the ward itself.”
Stuart Hough, Managing Director of Managed Services said:
“We are always keen to support local projects so it has been great to work with one of our very own team members in conjunction with the Gafael Llaw charity. The playground is now ready for children to enjoy and we look forward to collaborating with Gafael Llaw again in the future.”
Managed Services launched its first partnership store in 2004 to supply materials for Wrekin Housing Trust, providing major savings to the trust through non-branded partnership stores. Today Managed Services works with housing associations, local councils, educational institutions and NHS trusts to manage and supply their maintenance teams, whether in-house or contract.
