Britcon Launches Charity Foundation

We are delighted to communicate the launch of the Britcon Foundation. The purpose of this foundation is to support local charities and organisations in the communities we work in.

This year we have selected two charities to support which are;

Jessop Wing, Sheffield Hospital, Yorkshire

The Jessop Wing opened in 2001 and is a purpose built maternity unit where approximately 7,000 babies are born every year.

The Jessop Wing provides neonatal intensive care and special care for sick and premature babies born in Yorkshire and those transferred from other units who require this expertise.

Lindsey Lodge Hospice, Scunthorpe

Our second charity will be Lindsey Lodge Hospice, they provide care for adults with life limiting illnesses and specialist palliative care for day and inpatients. As a charity, they rely heavily on the generosity of local people and organizations to raise just over £3.7 million each year. The majority of the running costs have to be raised from donations and fundraising by the local community.
