Workers at Wireless CCTV have nominated Springhill Hospice as their charity of the year – for the next three years – as part of a company-wide commitment to support for the local community. And the fundraising has got off to a flying start with over £2,600 being raised from their first event to take on the recent Gauntlet Games at Heaton Park.
The successful Rochdale based company are leading suppliers of mobile surveillance systems and site security. Winner of the 2015 Rochdale Business Awards, taking the trophy for business of the year with a turnover of over £5 million, WCCTV have, in the last year, expanded into their new global headquarters on Kingsway Business Park and continue to develop their operation in the UK and United States.
Having now grown to around forty staff based at three offices, WCCTV voted overwhelmingly to support Springhill Hospice, a charity that has touched many family and friends, and Managing Director, David Gilbertson said, “We are proud to be based here in Rochdale and as a company we believe it is very important to give something back to the local community. We are delighted to give this three year commitment to the Hospice and look forward to playing our part in helping to continue the good work they do.”
Julie Halliwell, Chief Executive at Springhill Hospice said, “To make this level of commitment is absolutely overwhelming. On behalf of our patients, their families and carers I cannot thank everyone at WCCTV enough. We very much look forward to supporting them in their fundraising endeavours.”
