Adopted Charity

Each year the Refinery 'adopts' a charity to support throughout that year. These charities are nominated by our employees and therefore tend to be local charities whose cause has touched the lives of either our employees or their families or friends.

Throughout the year fund-raising events are held which include coffee morning, raffles, quiz nights, themed lunches and barbeques (weather permitting!).

The adopted charity for 2010 is Keech Hospice Care for children whose aim is to support families from across Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Milton Keynes with a child or young person diagnosed with a life-limiting condition

Their staff offer medical and social care, emotional support and friendship to the whole family, throughout the child's illness and after their death, for as long as it is needed. This care is available in-house at the charity's bright and comfortable children's hospice near Luton, or via their community nursing team at the family home.

Their aim is to help families make the most of the precious time they have left with their child. While many of the children will have only a short life, they all still have plenty of living to do!
