Foster and Williams raise funds for local hospital

17 August 2017 by

Two teams from refrigeration manufacturing giants Foster Refrigerator and Williams Refrigeration went head-to-head in a charity football match to raise funds for the children's ward at their local hospital, The Queen Elizabeth Hospital, King's Lynn.

Employees from the two companies both based in King's Lynn in Norfolk took part in the match with £1,500 raised to date for the Rudham Ward.

Teresa Coe, lead nurse of Paediatrics at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital said: "We are very grateful that Foster Refrigerator and Williams Refrigeration decided to come together to raise money for Rudham Ward. The money donated is really appreciated and will go to great use on the ward."

Nick Bamber, head of marketing at Foster Refrigerator, added: "Despite the traditional English summer weather the crowds came out in force! This just goes to show how important the hospital is to our local community. We want to thank everyone who came along to cheer on the teams, as well as everyone who has donated to this fantastic cause; and of course, Williams for a great match."

The final score was 6-1 to Foster Refrigerator.
