Hospice light bulb moment

22 April 2012

Recently locally based company Glassbond lit-up the faces of hospice staff when they presented a cheque for £2000.

Director Richard Randell said, "We know the brilliant work done by the Hospice and are delighted to be able to support them."

Hospice community fundraiser Maxine Armstrong said, "Glassbond have been very supportive of the Hospice for many years. We express our sincere thanks for their very generous donation which will be used to help us in continuing to provide the specialist care our patients and their lived ones need."

Company secretary Diane Randell added, "My son Sam helped in one of the hospice shops for over 3 months as part of the Duke of Edinburgh Scheme and he loved it.  The Hospice provides a valuable service for local people and they have to raise a lot of money to keep going."

Glassbond, founded in Wigan in 1978, is now a global centre of excellence for 'Lamp Clamping' cements. Probably the cement in every light bulb in your house or workplace, whether the traditional type or the latest 'energy efficient' bulbs; made in the Far East or Far West, came from Wigan.

Maxine added, "Without the right bond to hold everything together, every product or service would fall apart. The support provided by Glassbond and all the diverse sections of our community to the Hospice; whether individuals, businesses or organisations; is the cement that binds us all with a common purpose - to continue providing the best possible care for our friends, relatives and loved ones. Thank you."
