Neopost Employees Vote Help the Hospices as Their 'Charity of the Year'

ROMFORD, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Sept. 15, 2009) - Neopost Limited, Europe's leading supplier of mailroom solutions, whose headquarters are in Romford vote every year for the charity they wish to support. This year their chosen charity is Help the Hospices.

Help the Hospices is the leading charity supporting hospice care throughout the UK, ensuring the very best care for everyone facing the end of life. The majority of hospice care in the UK is provided by the charity's 213 member hospices. Care is given free of charge to the patient and their friends and family. It can be at home, in the hospice and in the community and can be for days, months or years.

Help the Hospice's services support hospice employees and volunteers and help to champion the voice of hospice care. They include a wide range of training and education programmes, informative and practical resources for hospice staff, and work to influence government policy.

Chris Burns, HR Director at Neopost said: "For Neopost to decide on who is nominated as our charity of the year we have to consider a number of things. Is it relevant to employees? Is it a national charity or local to our Head Office in Romford? What is its funding status? And so on. Help the Hospices ticks all the boxes for us. The work hospices do to care for people facing the end of life and their families has touched a number of our employees and will do so in the future".

Neopost have offices all over the country and are going to get each one involved with raising money for Help the Hospices. Fund raising events will include a Summer BBQ, Dress Down Days and a Christmas raffle.

Neopost has also partnered each of their regional offices with a local hospice. The aim is not just to raise money but to encourage employees to volunteer their time.

To kick the fund raising year off Neopost has made an initial donation of Pounds Sterling 2,000. Stephen Ballantyne, Corporate Partnerships Manager at Help the Hospices, went along to pick up the cheque from Neopost and said "We are delighted to have been chosen as Neopost's charity of the year. We are really looking forward to the coming year and hope that Neopost employees enjoy fundraising for hospices in their communities. Their support will go a long way to helping hospices so that they can continue to care for people with life-limiting and terminal illnesses and provide support to their families."
