A local Halton charity has been given a £2,500 boost thanks to fundraising by merseyflow staff and customers. 
 
Halton Haven Hospice is using the money to help fund the essential support and care it provides to its patients and service users 365 days a year.
 
Sponsored walks, runs, dress-down days and raffles all contributed to the impressive total.  The Mersey Gateway Bridge was also lit up purple in support of the charity and team member Janet Cook took part in two half marathons to help raise money.
 
Merseyflow raised £1,250 over the year – an amount which was then doubled by their parent company emovis. The merseyflow team is going to continue to raise funds for Halton Haven as its adopted charity throughout 2019.
 
Mia Barnby, HR Manager with merseyflow, said the team is proud of the work done to support a local charity that provides a valued service to the community in Halton.
 
She said: “I’d like to thank all of our staff and customers who have helped us reach this target. We’re pleased to be supporting Halton Haven Hospice again in 2019, because the work they do is so important and the team has really enjoyed raising the money. We already have lots of fundraising ideas in the pipeline for 2019.”
 
Faye O’Neill, a fundraiser at Halton Haven, said: “We’re really grateful for the support of local people and companies like merseyflow because donations like this enable us to care for people when they really need some support.
 
“The fundraising work that merseyflow have done for us over the last year has been superb and I know merseyflow has a range of fundraisers planned for 2019. We are looking forward to see how we can support them along the way.”
