Days Fleet have continued their charity efforts by raising over £1,000 for Morriston Hospital-based West Children’s Cystic Fibrosis.
Cystic Fibrosis is one of the UK’s most common life-threatening inherited diseases and affects over 10,000 people in the UK. Cystic Fibrosis affects the internal organs, especially the lungs and digestive system, by clogging them with thick sticky mucus, which makes it hard to breathe and digest food.
The donation will be used to purchase new equipment reduces the treatment time by 50% and is portable, meaning the treatment can be undertaken in the comfort of the child’s home rather than at hospital.
10-month-old Hollie Phillips, daughter of Craig and Melanie, will be one of the children who will benefit directly as a result of the donation from Days Fleet, where Melanie works.
Melanie said: “We have been truly touched by the kind gesture and appreciate the donation to the cystic fibrosis unit. The generosity of my colleagues will directly benefit our baby girl Hollie and other families living with this life-limiting condition.
“I am fortunate to work with such kind and generous people who truly care about their colleagues and put so much effort into fundraising for worthwhile causes.”
Days Fleet have raised over £10,000 for a number of good causes as part of their charity initiatives, which are led by Client Services Coordinator Donna Read.
