Building firm helps lay foundations for Children’s Appeal

Chorley construction firm D&G Builders has helped lay some solid foundations for Lancashire Teaching Hospital Charity’s £1 million Children’s Appeal.

The company has donated £1,500 to the appeal, which comes on top of recent support when the company, their suppliers and clients raised £902 to purchase gifts and play items from the charity’s Amazon wish list. 

Fundraising Manager Roya Armstrong said: “We are extremely grateful to all at D&G Builders plus its suppliers and clients for thinking of us. Even though we only launched the appeal a couple of weeks ago, we are already at £35,000 which augers well for the future and is testament to the wonderful generosity of our local community.”

The aim of the Children’s Appeal is to make the children’s wards, outpatients and other paediatric treatment areas at the Royal Preston Hospital less scary for the 10,000 babies and young people annually, aged from one day to 19 years, who attend for check-ups and treatment. The money it is raising will be used to pay for a seaside themed decorative make-over, virtual sky ceiling panels, air conditioning, reclining chairs for parent sleep-overs, new lifts and hoists, a new mental health suite and play equipment to create  a healing environment. It will also fund a parent break-out zone of a fully kitted out kitchen/dining area.
