A BUSINESS has marked its 50th anniversary with a £500 donation to Southmead Hospital.

The hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit will benefit from the donation by Anglian Home Improvements after being identified as one of 50 worthy causes across the UK to receive funds in celebration of the landmark year.

After careful consideration by a panel of judges, the company, which was inundated with requests from community groups, schools and charities, the hospital’s NICU was chosen.

Steve Hoadley, divisional managing director for Anglian Home Improvements Midlands and South West, said: “Southmead Hospital Charity’s NICU fund stood out to the judges for the invaluable contribution it makes to local people, and we were delighted to announce it as one of our #50for50 winners.

“We are passionate about showing our support for the community; and our purpose is not only to ensure quality at every step of the customer journey, but also to help create a positive legacy in the areas in which we operate.

“Anglian’s #50for50 campaign clearly demonstrates this, and we look forward to seeing the difference our support will make to Southmead Hospital Charity’s NICU fund and to the other worthy winners.”

Adrian Brown, community appeals manager at Southmead Hospital Charity, said: “We are extremely grateful to Anglian Home Improvements for its donation of £500.

“This generous contribution will help the team continue their fantastic work in providing neonatal intensive care for premature and sick babies in the Bristol area and the wider region.”
