Young people in Rotherham whose parents have passed away in Rotherham Hospice are to get extra support after their loss thanks to a £1,200 donation from Loadhog, Sheffield’s returnable transit packaging innovator.

Rotherham Hospice is already running bereavement sessions for youngsters who have lost their parents to cancer or ill health there and the cash will help to expand the vital service.

 

The Sunbeams group, which currently holds sessions four times a month, is dedicated to supporting young people with bereavement and pre-bereavement counselling and is proving to be a much needed service.

 

The hospice’s chief executive, Christopher Duff, said: “Loadhog’s donation is both thoughtful and timely. It will make a positive difference to what we can do for our patients and their families.

 

“We are trying to keep pace with the demand for this type of counselling and the donation will go towards funding this truly valued service. We are most grateful to Loadhog for choosing Rotherham Hospital for this donation.”

 

Loadhog has a charity team which decided to donate £1,200 eight times this year to a different cause each time. The first was to Revive Café, which supports the city’s homeless, and the second to the Include Foundation which helps vulnerable young people.

 

Jonathan Taylor, a member of the charity team, said: “Loadhog employees are proud to assist such a worthwhile project which will help so many people across the Rotherham region.”
