ProCure Framework healthcare teams giving back

Our ProCure Framework healthcare teams celebrate the season of goodwill by ramping up their charitable work.

Up and down the country, our ProCure Framework healthcare teams have been giving back to their local communities in the run up to the festive season.

Friarage team giving backChristmas is a time for giving, and our healthcare colleagues on our ProCure Framework projects are doing exactly that, with teams across the country getting involved in a range of festive activities to support good causes and the local community.

Our IHP teams, the joint venture between VINCI Building and Sir Robert McAlpine, at Poole and Bournemouth Hospitals held their second annual quiz night in November. Ten teams took part, raising a total of £2,106 for the Robotic Tilting Table Fund, the chosen legacy project.

Hexham team giving back.At Friarage, Derby, and Hexham hospitals, as well as the National Rehabilitation Centre in Loughborough, IHP team members all showed their festive spirit by donning their best holiday-themed knitwear on Christmas Jumper Day, raising money for charities Bright and Save the Children. 

Our Friarage team also held a collection for the foodbank in Northallerton, while in Derby the team have taken part in numerous activities, including visiting a care home and children hospital ward for the “12 Days of Giftmas” initiative and supporting a scheme gifting Christmas presents to underprivileged children.

Our IHP teams at Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals sponsored Charity’s Shining Stars Appeal where they light up commemorative Christmas lights across their estate, in memory of loved ones. The team also donated Christmas trees, including a beautiful 15-foot Nordmann fir at the entrance to Bassetlaw Hospital.

Our teams also supported the Christie Christmas Appeal through the Christie Foundation Trust. Gifts and Christmas table essentials were donated to help make patients’ time on the ward brighter over Christmas.

At Tameside Hospital, £500 worth of toys were delivered to the Children's department, and this couldn’t be done without the help of our wonderful supply chain partners too.  Our partners also supported IHP with donations of second-hand clothes for vulnerable communities around Blackpool, as well as new Christmas toys, chocolates and festive treats for vulnerable children.

Alan Murray, Blackpool Salvation Army Manager said: 

"Deep gratitude to IHP and supply chain partners, leaders in the development at Blackpool Victoria Hospital. The collective generosity of all staff and contractors contributing new toys for our Christmas Gift Appeal and clothing for our community wardrobe is truly remarkable. Your support is making a meaningful impact in our community.'' 

We wish all a peaceful festive season.
