Sebastian’s Action Trust has received a truly amazing donation of £134,360.48 from leading plumbing, heating and building materials supplier Wolseley Infrastructure.
Mark Higson, Managing Director of Wolseley UK and Keith Dorling, Managing Director of Wolseley Infrastructure, one of Wolseley UK’s brands, presented a cheque to Jane Gates OBE, Sebastian’s Action Trust’s CEO, during a recent visit to The Woodlands - the Trust’s site in Crowthorne, Berkshire.
During their visit on Friday, October 26th, the Wolseley representatives were given a tour of The Woodland’s impressive grounds by Jane Gates and also the Trust’s Corporate Development Manager, Simon Lillywhite.
Wolseley Infrastructure raised their donation during a glittering summer ball held earlier this year which was hosted by Britain’s Got More Talent star Stephen Mulhern. The company also held a golf day which was attended by many of its suppliers.
The money has helped fund the refurbishment of two buildings within the grounds of The Woodlands - Cedar and Beech - which are used as recreational and communal space for hundreds of families of seriously-ill children that are supported by Sebastian’s Action Trust.
It has also enabled the introduction of garden and horticultural projects, provided security fencing, pathways and terracing, a new security system, utilities and the donation will also contribute towards this year’s Christmas events being planned for our many supported families.
Jane Gates OBE, Sebastian’s Action Trust’s CEO, said: “This absolutely incredible amount of money that has been donated by our wonderful corporate supporters, Wolseley Infrastructure, is so important in enabling Sebastian’s Action Trust to walk alongside the families of seriously-ill children from diagnosis, through treatment and beyond.
“We are so grateful for this generous contribution. I would like to extend my sincere appreciation to Wolseley Infrastructure and anyone who have supported their fundraising events.”
Sebastian’s Action Trust is here for families of seriously-ill children. Always. The Trust doesn’t receive a single penny of Government funding, so is entirely dependent upon its own fundraising endeavours together with the generosity of its supporters and sponsors.
