Western Power Distribution sponsor Virtual Challenge

Western Power Distribution (WPD) have kindly agreed to sponsor our Virtual  Challenge which takes place this September.

 

WPD’s Corporate Communications Officer Karen Welch said:

“We believe in playing an active role in the communities we serve by supporting worthy causes – like charities and voluntary organisations. We are 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.

“City Hospice is a fantastic charity and we would encourage local people and businesses to get behind the campaign and help raise a bumper amount of money to support the fantastic work that they do. We hope the Virtual Challenge will help raise vital funds for the hospice in a really fun and enjoyable way.”

Daisy Magill, Fundraising and Events Coordinator said:

“We are thrilled WPD has agreed to sponsor our very first virtual challenge. This is a fantastic opportunity to engage with our supporters, and encourage people to keep active while supporting their local hospice this September. I am really excited to see what creative challenge ideas our supporters come up with. Thank you so much to WPD for supporting us, especially during these challenging times.”

Sign-up to our Free Virtual Challenge now. Raise a minimum of £40 to receive your HOSPICE HERO medal – or email me  for further information, I would love to hear from you!

WPD also offer a Priority Services Register which our patients and other people in the community can register to join for free.

Karen explains how it works:

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. 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.  To join the Priority Services Register  here or by telephone you can 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.

In the event of a power cut, please call 0800 6783 105 or just ring 105

Thank you so much to Karen and the team for continuing to support City Hospice and kindly sponsoring our Virtual Challenge.
