The money was raised through donations of aluminium cans, old radiators and other scrap metal from the public, which Michael White, owner of T Baker (JUNR) Ltd, then recycled, donating the money raised to Phyllis Tuckwell. Mr White has been raising money for Phyllis Tuckwell for a number of years now, and has donated well over £21,000 in total.
Phyllis Tuckwell is a Hospice Care charity which provides supportive and end of life care for patients and families affected by cancer, or another serious progressive illness. Every day it supports over 250 patients and relatives at the Hospice in Farnham, the Beacon Centre in Guildford and in patients’ own homes, through a mix of medical care, nursing, therapies, counselling, social work and practical support.
“We would like to thank Mr White for this generous donation, and for his continued support over the years,” said Paul Pearson, Corporate Fundraiser at Phyllis Tuckwell. “As the NHS/Government only covers 20% of our costs, we have to raise over £15,000 a day to offer all of our services to our patients, and rely heavily on the support and generosity of the local community to reach this target.”
If you have any scrap metal which you would like to give to be recycled, T Baker (JUNR) Ltd would be happy to accept it. Please take any items you have to the company’s yard on School Hill in Wrecclesham.
