Hastings Freight raises cash fore Sheffield hospice
Sep 11, 2018
Hastings Freight, a member of Palletways, the European express palletised freight network, recently held its inaugural Golf Day at Beauchief Golf Club in Sheffield.
It was well supported with eight teams taking part, including a mix of customers and members of staff. They collectively helped to raise more than £4,700 for the charity that offers specialist palliative care for people aged 18 and over throughout Sheffield.
Megan Senior, fundraising manager at St Luke's Hospice, said: "As demand for our services increases, we're grateful for Hasting Freight's support. The funds will make a real difference to the lives of people in this area now and in the future."
Gary Askwith, commercial director at Hastings Freight, added: "This was our inaugural charity day, though due to its success it'll definitely become an annual event. It's a pleasure to donate to St Luke's – we know how reliant the charity is for help and support and how much good work it'll be able to do across the region as a result."
Situated on the Barlborough Links industrial estate, close to J30 M1, Hastings Freight serves both local and international customers. Some 1,600 pallets pass through the warehouse of Hastings Freight daily, a delivery schedule which is unsurpassed in South Yorkshire.
Hastings Freight is one of over 115 independent transport providers that are part of the Palletways UK network. They benefit from shared expertise and resources from within the group to deliver consignments of palletised freight to market faster and more cost effectively than ever before. The Palletways Group comprises 450+ depots and 20 hub operations, through which it provides collection and distribution services across 20 European countries, including the UK.
