Emma Butler, Head of Commercial at Waste Experts

"As part of our corporate social responsibility programme at Sharpsmart we have made a commitment to support projects and charities that help to improve the quality of life of the people in our local communities.  With our central support office based in Spennymoor and our core business mission being to ‘make healthcare safer’ through our products and services, it seemed a natural fit for us to choose CDDFT as our charity partner and help fund important developments in patient care."

- Gemma Ridley, BID Process Manager, Sharpsmart

"It seemed a natural choice for us to choose CDDFT charity due to the amazing work the NHS do. But also I felt compelled after finding out just how many of the home comforts the patients have in hospital are funded by the charity not the trust. We wanted to do 'our bit' to help fund the amazing work."

- Fresh Business Solutions 

"After seeing all the great work other business were doing for the charity, it was something we had to get involved in. At some point we will all rely on the NHS so want to help promote their great work as much as we can and raise vital funds across County Durham and Darlington. We see the struggles healthcare providers are facing so thought it was imperative we support the charity in anyway we can."

- The Axe House

"The CDDFT Charity was a natural choice for me, my Mum is 20 years in the NHS and I see the daily struggles they face. Being able to raise money for a charity that provides amazing support and equipment for people in our local area was a no brainer for us. We are blessed to have our NHS and we will do everything we can to continue support the charities great work."
