Green 4 Solutions Supports Local Charity 'A Gift To Lift'
Friday August 28, 2015
On the last Friday of every month, staff at Green 4 Solutions host a dress down day whereby all employees turn up to work in their casual clothes. To benefit from this once a month privilege, staff must donate £2 to a charity of choice for that month.
This month, we have chosen to support ‘A Gift To Lift’ – a local based charity which supports others battling with blood cancer.
A Gift To Lift was set up by Alex Hopwood in 2014. Alex from Hinckley was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia in September 2013, aged 22.
Alex received amazing care and support during her time in hospital which made her journey all the more bearable. She became aware that not everyone is as fortunate to receive the support and lifts that she did. With this in mind, she decided to set up a charity to be able to give lifts to blood cancer sufferers, no matter what their age.
After receiving chemotherapy, radiotherapy and two bone marrow transplants, Alex lost her battle with cancer on 15th December 2014.
A Gift To Lift continue to raise money for blood cancer patients, and aim to reach Alex’s long term aim of buying a holiday home in Norfolk, so patients can spend time with their loved ones.
