Making us the first ever Corporate Patrons of Butterwick Hospice, a new honour for businesses which have given the charity exceptional help.
Alastair Powell said “Butterwick is a local charity and we’re a local business. I was born and bred in the area and want to do whatever we can to help such a worthwhile cause. We have a workforce of more than seven hundred people. All of them have heard of the Butterwick or will know someone who has been helped by the hospice over the years. I’m delighted to become the first hospice patron.”
Butterwick Corporate Partnership Manager Anne Cooling. “This is incredible generosity from Alastair. He’s now our first ever Corporate Patron and we hope there will be many more in the years ahead.”
