Trox makes every penny count for hospital appeal

Trox

Inspired by the story of a brave 9-year-old boy who has spent his life in and out of hospital, staff of Trox UK in Thetford raised over £700 by saving one- and 2-pence coins. The money has made it possible to buy several pieces of equipment for neo-natal car at Norfolk’s Jenny Lind Children’s Hospital.

Tammy Bannister, an employee for nine years (left in picture), prompted the fund-raising effort when she told colleagues how her young son Charlie, had received years of care from the hospital. Born with cerebral palsy, he has endured numerous operations and now has splints on his legs to help his mobility.

Tammy Bannister says, ‘I never dreamed when I mentioned our experience of the Jenny Lind Children’s Hospital that my colleagues would be so motivated to help me raise this amount of money. It started with me just having one box on my desk, but then we were having to put more and more boxes around our headquarters in Thetford.’

Trox UK plans to continue its fund-raising efforts by electing a new charity for 2015.
