KP Snacks and Intelect join forces for Charity Family Fun Day

Teesside Hospice and Bloodrun

Middlesbrough-based engineering company, Intelect recently joined forces with long-term client and food manufacturer, KP Snacks, in order to host an employee family fun day and raise money for two local charities, Teesside Hospice and Bloodrun EVS.

The event was held at Norton Stockton Ancients Football ground, and saw over 250 people attend, with a grand total of £1,400 being raised throughout the day of fundraising.

Alongside there being a range of fun activities, the two companies also took part in a seven-a-side football tournament, which resulted in the Intelect Blue team coming out on top following a hard battle in the final against KP Snacks.

After working together for over 20 years, the two companies decided to partner up to raise vital funds for their chosen charities, all of whom rely heavily on donations and volunteers to operate their invaluable services.

Due to the pandemic, Intelect and KP had to hold off on their previous plans to host the day for a second time in 2019, however both companies were pleased when they got the go ahead for this year.

The £1,400 that was raised has since been split evenly between Teesside Hospice and Bloodrun EVS, an amount both charities were thrilled to accept.

Anne Cooling, Head of Corporate for Teesside Hospice said, “The recent family fun day hosted by Intelect and KP Snacks was enjoyed by everyone who attended. The donations raised from the fundraising activities will go towards supporting people and families who have been affected by a terminal illness.

“These donations will help Teesside Hospice ensure people receive the highest level of specialist palliative care and to stay as independent as long as possible. Teesside Hospice values our corporate partnership with Intelect and we hope this partnership continues for many years ahead.”

Gill Dixon, Secretary at Bloodrun EVS echoed Anne’s thanks, saying, “As a small local charity, Bloodrun EVS (Emergency Voluntary Service) is manned entirely by unpaid volunteers and is dependent on the generosity of local businesses and the public to continue to provide its free-of-charge urgent transportation service to, predominantly, our local NHS Trusts.

She continued, “This donation from Intelect and KP Snacks is most welcome and very gratefully received and will be an amazing help towards our current goal, which is to replace one of our aging vehicles.”

Intelect’s Marketing and Communications Manager, Lily Brothwood led the organisation of the fun day, she said, “It was fantastic to see so many people come together to support two fantastic local charities. Bloodrun and Teesside Hospice provide invaluable services to our local community, so we were really proud to be able to once again partner with KP Snacks to support them.

“As a Corporate Partner of Teesside Hospice, we understand the vital role they play when it comes to supporting patients who are suffering with terminal illness and their families. Selected by our employees as our charity of choice for 2022, we felt it was only right to make them our chosen charity for the fun day.”
