Staff at Ipswich-based car insurance comparison website Tiger.co.uk today presented a cheque for £1,559 to the Woolverstone Wish fund, a charity supporting the Woolverstone Wing outpatient oncology unit at The Ipswich Hospital. The money was raised through a combination of sponsorship money raised by employee Kevin Hardwick, who ran the Edinburgh marathon this year and a monthly charity “dress down day” held by the company.
The cheque was presented to Cheryl Thayer, Chairperson of the Woolverstone Wish committee by Kevin Hardwick and Jessie Caldwell from Call Connection Ltd, owner of the Tiger.co.uk motor insurance comparison site.
Jessie Caldwell, Project Manager at Call Connection, said: “We are delighted that once again our staff decided to support the important work that is carried out in the oncology unit at The Ipswich Hospital and we would encourage other companies in the area to lend their support too”.
Cheryl Thayer of the Woolverstone Wish committee said: "We're really grateful to Tiger.co.uk for their fundraising efforts and the money they've raised will go towards potentially saving a life in the East of England."
