As a firm, we recognise the need for a comprehensive corporate social responsibility programme which responds to key social and environmental concerns through a variety of outlets from pro-bono work to environmental initiatives.
With this in mind, Watson Burton’s annual nominated charitable cause to receive our support this year is The Sick Children's Trust.
In Summer 2013 The Sick Children's Trust and the Children's Heart Unit Fund (CHUF) launched a £2m appeal to build an urgently needed 'Home from Home' at the Freeman Hospital in Newcastle.
Patrick Harwood, Watson Burton CEO, said: "Watson Burton has exclusively sponsored the garden at Scott House. We wanted to create an area where children and their families could play outside, enjoy some fresh air and spend some quality time together away from the hospital environment. I hope that many parents and families will be able to benefit from the facilities that Scott House can offer, it is a great project and we are very proud to say that we have been involved."
