Macclesfield-based Quint Group has donated over £5,000 to East Cheshire Hospice after completing a number of fundraising activities for the charity.

The Born Survivor challenge, a sponsored virtual cycle from Macclesfield to Warsaw and various baking competitions are just some of the fundraising activities that staff have taken part in.

East Cheshire Hospice was established in 1988 and provides ongoing care for those suffering with life-limiting illnesses.

Donations enable the charity to provide its services free of charge.

Camilla Crockett, Corporate and Community Relationship Manager at East Cheshire Hospice, said: “Quint has supported East Cheshire with fundraising and volunteering over a number of years, as a local business their support is key to the Hospice.

“Having worked with their staff on different projects it is a pleasure to see how engaged they are with the cause, and how ready to get involved they are.

“Their enthusiasm, ideas and can-do attitude has made a real impact here at the hospice.”

Quint was founded in 2009 and now operates in the UK, Poland, US and Australian territories employing over 100 staff, of which 76 are based at the company’s Macclesfield headquarters.

Mike Ransom, Managing Director of Quint, said: “We are extremely happy to be able to help out the local community in any we can.

“The East Cheshire Hospice provides a wonderful service to families around the area and many of our staff have an affiliation with the charity in some way.

“It’s not just about raising money, it’s about giving back to the community. Staff have also taken part in projects with East Cheshire Hospice where they have helped to rejuvenate a local community garden.

“Plans are well underway for the group’s 2017 fundraising events and community support, so watch this space.”
