bott raises funds for local children


Thanks to the fundraising activities from its Vehicle Conversion HQ in Ashby de la Zouch, the team at bott recently presented a cheque for £1,755 to the Phoenix Children’s Foundation. The money was raised through the generous donation of prizes by many


bott suppliers and through staff then buying raffle tickets and participating in dress-down days. The money donated is being put towards the purchase of a durable,


wheelchair-friendly floor for Phoenix’s new yurt. This will be used as a special educational base while visitors spend time at the centre near Ashby.


Established in 2006, the Phoenix Children’s Foundation sets out to enrich


and enhance the lives of youngsters, and their families, living with illness, disability or lack of opportunity. bott is also helping the charity with storage equipment in its shed, to


safely organise tools used by staff, volunteers and visitors. bott Ashby’s Managing Director, Kevin Woodward, said: “Our suppliers


and staff helped raise a fantastic amount and we are absolutely delighted to be able to support this local charity which enriches the lives of disadvantaged families”.

nothing made sense and everything seemed a battle, the Treetops Hospice at Home nurses were literally like a light in the darkness. “We had support and advice that


was exactly what we needed.” Phil Shreeve, Director of Clinical


Services, said: “We have to raise a significant amount of money every year in order to keep offering our services free of charge. “Our calendar is full of

fundraising events. We also welcome community support as well as corporate sponsorship opportunities and Charity of the Year partnerships. “We have 18 charity shops, two


cafes, a growing hospice lottery and also rely on general donations and legacies. All our income streams are vital to ensure that Treetops can continue to offer care and support to those who need it.”


Hardy Signs MD in Leaders Podcast


The Leaders Council of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is currently in the process of talking to leadership figures from across the nation, to understand leadership as a universal trait. Nik Hardy, Managing

show like this, where you speak to genuine leaders who have been there and done it, either on a national stage or within a crucial industry sector, is an absolute honour.”
