The FHL team met with Katie Tams, Corporate Fundraiser for The Donna Louise to present their annual donation for the 2017 calendar year. Over 12 months, the FHL team have raised £1,640 for the registered charity by organising events, casual dress days and proceeds from their snack bar.

Kingsley Burn, FHL Support Manager (pictured) said “We are proud to support The Donna Louise #ONEINAMILLION campaign and pledge to continue raising more donations throughout 2018 and beyond”.
The Donna Louise cares for children and young adults with life-limiting conditions, and their families. The Donna Louise Children’s Hospice was registered as a charity in 1999. They were set up to respond to the need for a children’s hospice service for Staffordshire and Cheshire.
The charity takes its name from a young local girl, Donna Louise Hackney, who sadly died from a life limiting condition at the age of 16. Her family wanted to help other children and families in a similar situation and so began fundraising in her name.
