Sovereign Health Care Charitable Trust, has made a £1,500 donation to The Sick Children’s Trust’s Eckersley House in Leeds.
The charitable trust, whose funds come from the Bradford based company Sovereign Health Care, decided to support the charity after being impressed with how lean the charity’s running costs were for their houses.
The Sick Children’s Trust provides free, high quality ‘Home from Home’ accommodation to families of sick children whilst they are being treated in hospital. Its Eckersley House in Leeds supports families of children staying at Leeds General Infirmary.
Russ Piper, Trustee of Sovereign Health Care Charitable Trust and Chief Executive of Sovereign Health Care said: “We are delighted to support this charity. Our trustees were impressed by the fact that The Sick Children’s Trust was able to provide a free, flexible service at a cost to the charity of only £14 per bedroom per night but it gives much more value to the families it supports.”
“Eckersley House makes a huge difference to both the children and their families at a time of great distress and anxiety.”
Jane McHale, House Manager at Eckersley House added: “Eckersley House has been fortunate enough to have had the support of Sovereign Health Care Charitable Trust over the last 20 years. They have made numerous donations totalling more than £5,000 and this new contribution is most welcome also as it will help with our running costs of the house which means we can continue our work with even more families in their time of need.”
