It’s impossible to imagine the heartbreak of having a child with a serious illness, which is why we feel Zoe’s Place is so special. As the only hospice organisation specifically for the very young, Zoe's Place cares for babies and children up to 5 who need specialist and palliative care for their life-limiting and life-threatening conditions. Their hospices are in Coventry, Middlesbrough and Liverpool. Our donation elicited this response from Sara Benson of Zoe’s Place: “We have had amazing, continued support from our wonderful friends at Kebbell. Their recent donation of just over £2,000 will make such a difference to us, especially at times such as these.”
Padstones is another charity whose purpose is close to our hearts. Not only is it located near Kebbell’s head office in Buckinghamshire, but it tackles the problem of homelessness amongst young people. As a housing developer, we are well aware that not everyone is fortunate enough to have a home of their own. Padstones helps address this by providing supported accommodation for vulnerable youngsters and encourages them to develop the required skills, knowledge and resilience needed for independent living.
On behalf of Padstones, Operations Manager Sharon Allen said: “Kebbell kindly donated £2,000 to our young people’s supported housing service. The money has been used for several initiatives including trips out and activities, Christmas presents, a Christmas dinner for all our young people and welcome packs of essentials like bedding and kitchenware.”
In previous years we have hosted a lunch for our charities to present the donations, but of course, it isn’t possible at present. Nevertheless, it has been a great pleasure to pass on the generosity of our employees. Our Sales and Marketing Director Andrea Fawell said: “Our teams are very happy to donate some of their earnings through the Give As You Earn scheme so we can help these two incredible charities, which are working so hard to help vulnerable children and young people.”
