Together raises nearly £3,000 for local charity Walthew House

We’re delighted to announce that we recently presented Walthew House, an independent charity supporting people in Stockport with sight or hearing loss, with a cheque for nearly £3,000.

The money was raised through a series of weekly collections after a colleague of ours, Ruth McCumesky, who volunteers at Walthew House in her spare time, nominated the charity for a fundraising focus month.

The charity was founded in 1882 and is supported almost entirely by donations and volunteers. A total of £2,948 was raised which will contribute to the refurbishment of the charity’s resource centre, which is expected to be completed in January 2017.

David Bond, fundraiser for Walthew House, commented: “Given that we rely on donations to provide our services and activities, it’s great for us to get support from local businesses like Together. We’re especially grateful to the colleague who nominated us – it’s really wonderful to know that our work in the community is valued and appreciated.”

Our HR director, Kevin Fisher, said: “Giving back to the community is fundamental to us at Together, and our weekly charity collections, which are coupled with a weekly dress down day, provide colleagues with the opportunity to nominate the charities that are particularly close to their hearts.

"We are delighted to be able to support Walthew House and are pleased that the funds raised will help make a real difference to the facilities available for those in the local area."
