Bedfordshire-based TPN Partner News Transport has won the February round of the TPN Charity Draw and has donated Â£500 to the Keech Cottage Hospice Care in Luton and The Captain Tom Foundation.
About the chosen charities
Keech Cottage Hospice Care in Luton provides free and specialist care for both adults and children who have life-limiting and terminal illnesses in Luton and south Bedfordshire. Keech Cottage is in News Transportâ€™s patch and has cared for relatives of the team.
The Captain Tom Foundation supports four incredible charities supporting metal health, ex Service personnel and their families as well as adults and kids who are affected by life-limiting illnesses or are terminally ill. News Transport wants to honour Captainâ€™s Tom support of the NHS by donating to his foundation.
The TPN Charity Draw receives a Â£10 monthly donation from each of our 100+ depots and the winning depot, generated at random, chooses which charity to support. The depot can use up to Â£500 of the money to reward staff, and the remainder is donated. However, many choose to donate all of their winnings.Â This is an important way for TPN to support those charities and causes which are important to our regional Partners.Â
