NMBS member makes major donation
HPS Heating and Plumbing Supplies has donated more than £1/2 million to Great Ormond Street Hospital.
The major donation of £527,618 comes after a sustained fundraising campaign by the NMBS member, which ranks as one of the leading independent heating and plumbing merchants in the South with over 34 branches.
The campaign, which started in 2005, has seen the HPS team host or take part in a number of events and initiatives which have been widely supported by the company’s customers and suppliers.
Specific activities have ranged from charity golf days and auctions to participation by individuals in marathons and other sponsored runs.
A cheque for the donation was presented to Great Ormond Street Hospital on Monday 25th September 2017.
Commenting on the donation, Peter Wilson, sales and marketing director at HPS Heating & Plumbing Supplies, said: “We’re delighted and proud to support such a worthy cause as Great Ormond Street Hospital. The hospital does an amazing job in caring for seriously ill children from all over the UK and the dedicated work of its staff is truly humbling.
“We’re now looking forward to redoubling our efforts and to reaching our next milestone of raising £1,000,000 for the hospital over the next few years.”
