Western Power Distribution sponsor City Hospice’s Jolly Jumper Campaign again this year

We are delighted that Western Power Distribution sponsor Jolly Jumpers 2020

Karen Welch, Corporate Communications Officer from WPD explains why they are supporting our Jolly Jumpers campaign for the second year:

“Western Power Distribution (WPD) believes in playing an active role in the communities it serves by supporting worthy causes – like charities and voluntary organisations. WPD is pleased to support City Hospice because it is a well-respected charity providing free specialist support to patients and their families during extremely difficult circumstances.

We will be taking part in the City Hospice Jolly Jumpers various dates in December, some of the team will be dressing up in elf costumes others just wearing colourful jumpers – this will mostly take place on Zoom!

It’s a fun way to raise money for a great cause, and even though a lot of people may still working from home, they can join in safely and virtually. It’s a great way of keeping in touch with their family, friends and colleagues.

This is a great opportunity for both business and individuals to show their support for the hospice during this anxious and difficult time. The work of City Hospice is really important, providing care  for people with life-limiting illnesses, they do such a wonderful job in our community”

Daisy Magill, Fundraising and Events said:

“Thank you so much to Karen and the team at Western Power Distribution for sponsoring our Jolly Jumpers Christmas Campaign. We are so grateful for your support.

We’re  hoping that many of our supporters will get involved and pick a Jolly Jumper day, this can be done socially distanced, on Zoom or even over a few dates. Let us know about your Jolly Jumper day –  we’d love to hear about it and assist you with your fundraising efforts.

Western Power Distribution is proud to support households who may need extra help and tell us how their service can help:

Sometimes power cuts can happen for reasons beyond our control.  We know this can be particularly worrying if you rely on electricity for medical equipment or if you are elderly, very ill or disabled.  This is where the Priority Services Register can help and it’s free to join. It helps us to look after customers who have extra communication, access or safety needs. It also helps us tailor our services to support households who may need extra help.  You can join here or call 0800 096 3080.

If you decide to join WPD’s Priority Services Register, we can:

  • Give you a direct number to call in a power cut, so you can get through to us straight away.
  • Agree a password with you before we visit, so you feel safe.
  • Provide special help, if needed through the British Red Cross.
  • Inform you in advance of planned interruptions to your electricity supply.
  • Keep you as informed as possible in the event of an unplanned power cut.

Anyone self-isolating, as a result of the coronavirus outbreak, should contact us in the event of a power cut and tell us the situation, even if they are not on the register. They can also contact us via the website .We will then do our very best to help these customers during a power cut.
