Penny Hydraulics grant application on behalf of local charity is approved by the RWHA Charity Fund, providing Ashgate Hospice with £1000 to support its vital end of life services.
The Royal Warrant Holders Association Charity Fund provides grants to charities nominated by Royal Warrant-holding companies. The Charity Fund was originally set up in 1897 to honour Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee. Since 2014, the Fund has granted over £350,000 to charitable causes with an estimated 46,000 people benefitting from the financial support.
Granted a Royal Warrant of Appointment in 2022, Penny Hydraulics have supplied chandelier hoists to Royal Households since 2014. Providing efficient access to chandeliers for cleaning and maintenance, lighting hoists have achieved a significant improvement in safety for Royal Household staff and a reduction in maintenance downtime.
The RWHA Charity Fund approved a £1000 grant applied for by Ed Penny, on behalf of Ashgate Hospice. Cherished by the local community in North Derbyshire, the hospice provides palliative and end-of-life care, free of charge, to people aged 18 and over. Patient’s loved ones also receive practical, emotional and bereavement support from the hospice.
