Cheshire Charities Receive Festive Gifts from Local Firm


Winsford-based firm, UK Container Maintenance (UKCM) has donated festive gifts to local

charities across Cheshire including St Luke’s Hospice and The Joshua Tree.

The leading container repair and refurbishment company, based on Road One in Winsford wanted to support charitable causes in their community and discovered the wonderful services that both St Luke’s Hospice and The Joshua Tree provide across Cheshire.

UKCM donated a range of selection boxes to St Luke’s Hospice which will be given to people visiting their Christmas Grotto this December as well gift experiences to children and their families that use The Joshua Tree’s services.

The Joshua Tree and St Luke’s Hospice have been chosen by the UKCM team as the company’s charities of the year, which they will be supporting throughout 2019.

Founder and CEO of UKCM Emma Elston MBE explained,

“Here at UKCM we understand the importance of shining a light on charities which don’t always get the recognition they deserve. Both St Luke’s Hospice and The Joshua Tree are small, local charities which support communities in Cheshire. The work their teams do on a daily basis is truly remarkable and we are looking forward to supporting them throughout 2019.”

Andy Bailey, Corporate Partnerships Manager at St Luke’s Hospice, said,

“It’s great to see the season of goodwill is very much alive across Cheshire! The donation of over 100 selection boxes is a really nice gesture from UKCM, which will go down a treat with the families we support over Christmas. St Luke’s Hospice relies on the backing from local businesses and we are very much looking forward to working with the UKCM team through 2019 to help fundraise for our patient care services.”

St Luke’s Hospice based in Winsford has been providing palliative care and support to adults across Cheshire for over thirty years, helping individuals and their families face life-threatening illnesses.

The Joshua Tree, based in Northwich, helps children and their families across the North West living with the life-changing effects of childhood cancers, to ensure they receive the best academic, social and emotional support, both in and out of school.
