Displaysense has announced it has donated display products to the St Helena Hospice shop in Colchester.
Charities and other not for profit organisations have had a testing time over the past couple of years with the recession and spiralling debts limiting the funds they desperately need to help the less fortunate.
The emergency budget on June 22nd has made it even tougher for charities to find a real deal and make the most out of their finances. With Vat to rise to 20%, charities now have to rely on donations more frequently to get by and raise funds.
Displaysense, the UK’s leading supplier of display cabinets and leaflet holders have recently donated some display products to the St Helena Hospice shop in Colchester and believe other competitors in the display industry should be doing more to aid struggling charities. In a bid to raise awareness of the issues facing the countries charities, Displaysense are looking at donating a number of other products to good causes and contacting other suppliers to get involved.
Clare Debeaux from the St Helena Hospice branch in Colchester said she was “delighted and thrilled with the donation of the clothing rails which have transformed the shop window and allowed elderly customers to access items easier”. All donations help the St Helena hospice to meet all the needs of people suffering from life threatening conditions, whether they are physical, emotional or spiritual.
Steve Whittle the marketing director at Displaysense commented on the company’s history of donating to good causes. He said: “Even back since the company’s creation in 1978, we firmly believe that it is our duty to donate to good causes such as the St Helena Hospice. We also believe not enough companies in our industry do this frequently enough. With everyone keeping such a watchful eye on their bottom lines, they have forgotten about helping out their local communities and charitable causes.”
