More than 1,250 Halewood employees voted the Charlie's Chance Foundation as the plant's next charity of the year.
The charity helps families and children with cancer access treatment which is unavailable in the UK and was set up by trustees including Trim and Final employee Robbie Fearns and Andy Coles plus a wider team from Trim & Final. Sunflowers Cancer Centre in Aigburth came second with 507 votes whilst Alder Hey Children's Hospital, Claire House and Cheshire Blood Bikes were runners up.
Steph Stephenson, Head of HR at Halewood, has taken on the role of the Charity of the Year chair and will lead the plant's fundraising committee over the next 12 months. Steph commented: "The Charlie's Chance Foundation is a cause close to many peoples' hearts and I look forward to working with them and our employees to help more children and families in need. More than half of our workforce participated in the final round of voting which reflects the high levels of engagement and passion for local charities."
The Charity of the Year Committee will now start planning fundraising events for the next 12 months.
