News: Charity begins at the home of Rotherham United


The Rotherham United Business Club recently held another successful networking meeting at the New York Stadium.

Businesses from a wide range of sectors met over breakfast to network and exchange contacts and make referrals.

Mark Hitchens, head of commercial at Rotherham United spoke about the commercial side of the club, from shirt sponsorship and matchday hospitality to the non-matchday conference and events facilities at the £20m stadium.

Jamie Noble, head of community at Rotherham United, gave a presentation on the work that the club does across the local community that saw the Millers win the Community Club of the Year at the Football League Awards 2012.

After his business card was pulled out of the hat at the meeting, David Coldrick, managing director of Home Instead Senior Care Rotherham, donated his prized, signed, Rotherham United away shirt to Rotherham Hospice.

Daniel Taylor (pictured, right), who received the donation on behalf of the Hospice said: "We are delighted to accept the shirt from Home Instead Senior Care. We will be auctioning it off in the near future.

"There is growing interest in the Millers, especially now the home ground is New York Stadium. I believe that will help us achieve some high bids which will help us support our work at Rotherham Hospice."

David Coldrick (pictured, left) added: "I was pleased to be invited to visit Rotherham Hospice recently and was really impressed. It has all the facilities of a modern hospital but it feels far more like a comfortable hotel. There are great views across the playing fields, a lovely garden and wonderful friendly staff.

"Many people find their stay in the Hospice enables them to return home through giving extra peace of mind for themselves and their loved ones. And of course the ethos of Home Instead Rotherham is one of providing companionship based care at home which can suit that perfectly."

Home Instead Senior Care provides affordable non-medical home care services to older people including companionship, home help, personal care and other domiciliary care. Its home care service enables older people to remain independent and avoid residential care homes.

The next meeting of the Rotherham United Business Club will be a Pukka Pie n pea lunch in association with club sponsors, Eric Twigg Foods on November 29.
