We would like to thank Shropshire-based plant hire company, Ridgway Rentals Ltd for donating £5,000 to us over the Christmas period.

The pandemic has been an extremely challenging time for us, and getting support from businesses such as Ridgway Rentals has been vital to enabling us to continue to keep providing care to children and families that need us.

Instead of sending Christmas cards and gifts, Ridgway decided to donate the equivalent to us.

Stuart Jones MD of Ridgway said: "We all faced new challenges during 2020. Charities have been hugely affected with fundraising events cancelled and shops having to close.

"That’s why we decided to make a donation to Hope House Children's Hospices instead of sending cards & gifts to our customers.

"We chose Hope House Children's Hospices as, being local to us, we know the great work it does in caring for children and their families when they desperately need it."
