Hull-based Countrywise Water Coolers has strengthened its ties with St Andrew’s Hospice, Grimsby, by agreeing to provide bottles of water for free at the charity’s fundraising events.
The hospice provides holistic care for adults and children from Hull, East Yorkshire, North and North East Lincolnshire areas, and is looking to raise £2.5 million to redevelop its facilities.
Countrywise already provide drinking bottles to the hospice, which are placed in each of the rooms for the patients.
Bottled water will be available at many of the charity’s forthcoming events including its Widower Challenge on 22 March at McCormack’s Bar, in Cleethorpes, where participants attempt to eat what’s thought to be the world’s hottest curry, and where chefs will need to wear goggles and a face mask when cooking it.
Adrienne Hodgson, St Andrew’s Hospice representative, said: “This is a wonderful offer from Countrywise and shows how local companies can support the hospice in many different ways.
“The hospice receives very little funding and relies heavily on local supporters, to ensure we continue to make each day count.”
