Staff at Thomas Sanderson, the conservatory and window blinds and shutter specialists, raise thousands of pounds each year for numerous charities. On 19th April it was my great pleasure to visit the company's HQ in Waterlooville to give a brief presentation to around 150 staff about the work of Smile4Wessex, the latest charity to benefit from their generosity.
Thomas Sanderson's charity committee chose Smile4Wessex following its nomination by colleague, Sydney Smith, after a good friend of hers underwent treatment at the Wessex. Sydney was glowing in her praise for the care he received, and only too pleased when her nomination was endorsed by the charity team.
Following the presentation to staff; charity committee members, Adam Gillen, Polly Atherton and Sarah Slade, and Sydney Smith handed over a cheque for £500.
It's clear that staff at Thomas Sanderson are really enthusiastic about their charity fundraising effort and we'd like to thank them all for their very generous support for Smile4Wessex.
