News: Willmott Dixon Partnerships celebrates first year of support for Dr Ted’s


Willmott Dixon Partnerships has celebrated a year of support for the Rotherham Hospital Charity, at Dr Ted's Dinner Dance.

The repairs and maintenance company sponsored the fundraising event at The Holiday Inn, Rotherham, and helped Dr Ted's Charity Appeal to raise over £7,500 towards two new ventilation unit for the Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU) at Rotherham Hospital.

Willmott Dixon works with Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council to deliver a repairs and maintenance service to 10,500 homes in the areas of Wentworth South, Wentworth Valley, Rother Valley West and Rother Valley South.

Over the last 12 months, it has completed a number of projects to help improve the SCBU, including transforming some outdated spaces within the unit to create a new Parents' Suite for young patients and their families.

Staff from the company's Rotherham branch will also be returning to the ward in July to carry out further works to the bathrooms, and create a new meeting and education room.

Leigh Garbutt, regional customer and community manager at Willmott Dixon, said: "We were really happy to support Dr Ted's Dinner Dance. All the staff who attended had a wonderful evening and it was the perfect way to celebrate our ongoing relationship with Rotherham Hospital Charity and the SBCU.

"As a company, Willmott Dixon are committed to helping develop the SBCU. It's important that families of the babies being cared for here have an environment in which they feel comfortable, and we hope that our work will go some way to helping them during a difficult time."

Tracy Williams, charity development officer at The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust said: "We're so grateful for everything that Willmott Dixon have done to support us over the last year. Their contribution to Dr Ted's dinner dance really helped to make the evening a great success. The money we have raised will make a significant contribution to our fundraising target for the new ventilation unit, and help us to care for our patients and their families in the best possible way."

Mick Williamson, managing director of Willmott Dixon Partnerships, added: "This is very much part of our ethos called Transforming Communities, which is about how we can make a real, positive difference to the lives of people living locally.

"We want to play an active part in delivering initiatives that leave real legacy and recently wrote a report, called Transforming Communities, to share ideas and help organisations deliver sustainable growth to help communities through these current austere times."
