Swindon-based staff from Dialog Semiconductor recently visited Prospect Hospice to present a cheque for £6,850. This represents funds donated by the organisation and raised by employees over a two-year period as part of the company’s corporate giving programme.
Dialog Semiconductor is a global hi-tech company with one of its design centres based in Swindon.
They have raised funds for the Wroughton-based charity through a range of events, with several staff taking part or volunteering at the charity’s Run the Rainbow event, and supporting the Belmond British Pullman event taking place next month. Other fundraising activity by the company’s staff includes ‘A Grand in 24 Hours’, a day-long campaign that raised £1,700, the proceeds from an employee Open Day, match-funding for various individual activities which staff have undertaken in support of the hospice, as well as donations by Dialog.
Pauline Jackson, a project manager at Dialog Semiconductor, said: “Prospect Hospice is a charity that is very close to the hearts of many of the people who work here. It is a charity that has supported the partners of some of our employees, and has been somewhere that they have been able to turn at a time when they have needed help. We have been glad to raise funds for them, and will continue to do so in the years ahead.”
Amy Francombe, community fundraiser at Prospect Hospice said: “It was a pleasure to meet up with some of the team from Dialog Semiconductor, and to have the chance to thank them on behalf of everyone at Prospect Hospice for their superb support for our work.”
