2020 marked the 50th year of business for Dennison Commercials and to celebrate the momentous occasion the company had planned a host of exciting activities throughout the year; one such project was to raise £50,000 for their charity of the year, the Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice.
Although, the company was unable to fulfill many of the charitable activities planned due to the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions, Dennison Commercials will be continuing to honour their commitment of donating £50,000 to Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice.
Northern Ireland’s Children’s Hospice helps children and their families through a range of services. These include end of life care, care at home, and supported short breaks, where children and families can come and enjoy tailored activities in a safe environment.
Wilson Dennison, Chairman of Dennison Commercials said: “2020 has proved a difficult year for many, and the pandemic has had a more than significant impact on business sectors across the province including charities. Although we were unable to host many of the fundraising events that we had planned, we are delighted to present the NI Children’s Hospice with our donation to help support them in the incredible work that they do.”
Heather Weir, Chief Executive of NI Children’s Hospice commented: “2020 was a year almost every business will want to forget quickly, but Dennison Commercials have done something truly special this year by making an incredible donation of £50,000 to Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice in celebration of the business’s 50th birthday.
“This generosity is supporting the Children’s Hospice at a crucial time: our services have never been more needed than during the COVID-19 pandemic, but the charity’s usual fundraising activities have never been so restricted, as well.
“Thank you to everyone at Dennison Commercials for making a real difference in to so many life-limited babies, children and young people who need our specialist care, and the families who turn to the Children’s Hospice for support.”
