Salix Homes donates £500 to hospice.

A hospice has received a much needed cash boost from a housing provider.
Salford-based Salix Homes has donated £500 to the Halton Haven Hospice in Runcorn.
Salix Homes created an online video aimed to advise its tenants of the impending Welfare Reforms and used a customer-friendly concept that had been designed by Cheshire-based housing provider Halton Housing Trust.
In lieu of payment for using their video design, Halton Housing Trust suggested Salix Homes makes a donation to the hospice, which cares for people with life-limiting illnesses.
Sue Sutton, director of customer and neighbourhood services at Salix Homes, said: “We were delighted to make a donation to Halton Haven Hospice and hope it will go some way towards helping them continue the wonderful work they do.
“We’d also like to thank Halton Housing Trust for sharing their video with us as it has saved us costly resources, enabled us to keep our tenants informed of any changes to benefits which may affect them and we’ve also been able to support a worthwhile cause at the same time.”
Hannah Denny, fundraising support officer at Halton Haven Hospice, said: “All the donations sent to Halton Haven are used to make our patients as happy and comfortable as possible during their stay with us.
“We pride ourselves on the specialist care we are able to offer, and without the kind support of friends like Salix Homes, these services would not be available to our local community.”
