CRJ Services delighted to support two local charities this Christmas
Leading UK material processing equipment suppliers CRJ Services and Matpro Machinery have decided to support two local charities in lieu of donating Christmas gifts to their customer base. Willowbrook Hospice and East Cheshire Hospice are the beneficiaries of such support, both receiving a sum of £1500 each. Similar in nature, the two hospices provide exceptional, holistic care and support to those suffering with life-limiting and terminal illnesses in the North-West area.
Ben McQuaid, Director at CRJ Services and Matpro Machinery commented;
“In previous years both CRJ and Matpro have sent customers gifts at Christmas to show appreciation for the business given to us during the year. This year, we’ve made a joint decision to support two charities providing care, comfort and compassionate support to patients with life limiting illnesses.
Christmas is a wonderful time for many, but there are elements of it where we over indulge and show unnecessary extravagance in the face of others experiencing less fortune. We at Matpro Machinery and CRJ Services acknowledge and recognise the magnificent work that both East Cheshire Hospice and Willowbrook Hospice are doing in the local community and are delighted to support them through the help of our valued customers.”
