Uren Food Group have donated to local charity Incubabies who are fundraising for Wirral Women’s & Children’s neonatal unit at Arrowe Park Hospital, for a new extension of the intensive care unit.
The current unit now cares for babies from a much wider area than ever before, therefore the demand of the services is increasing and they need help to meet this demand by extending the unit to make it fully compliant with national standards for space.

Uren’s employee, Sarah, took on the challenge of trekking up Mt Snowdon (1,085m) in Wales at night for Claire House Children’s Hospice.
Claire House Children’s Hospice helps seriously and terminally ill children live life to the full by creating wonderful experiences and bringing back a sense of normality to family life. Uren kindly sponsored the trek and raised some much needed funds for the charity.
‘We set off at midnight, from Llanberis. It was pitch dark all the way up and with only our head torches to light the way, we arrived at the summit for 3am. Seeing the sunrise across Snowdonia National Park will be a memory we won’t forget.’

Tandem sky diving fund raising campaign to raise money for Alzheimer’s Society.
Seven years ago Kathryn Veever’s mum Janet was diagnosed with early onset dementia at the age of 54. She went from being a very physically fit, capable working woman to living in an almost constant state of disillusionment and often psychosis. Janet’s care in recent years has become an almost impossible task with many care providers simply not equipped to meet her needs – in part due to her relatively young age – and the majority of her care has fallen to Kathryn’s father and extended family.
Since diagnosis Kathryn has campaigned tirelessly to try and raise funds and awareness of this disease and to create a better understanding of what living with dementia really means.
Her most recent fund raising campaign was undertaking a tandem sky dive from 15,000ft along with 3 friends/relatives also effected by this diagnosis. Despite having the original date cancelled due to bad weather and prolonging their anguish all 4 brave ladies completed the challenge last weekend and between them managed to raise over £2,500 for the Alzheimer’s Society.

Uren recently delivered a donation to The Wirral Food Bank.Richard (who is the Manager) explained to us how it works and how they help the community. He also showed us around the facility that they have there, which is in Birkenhead.
They weigh everything that is donated and they were very grateful for our support & contribution.
Richard advised that this is the main warehouse on the Wirral. From here they send out packages to various collection points based around the local community, from where the people who need extra help can get vouchers and collect products which are needed.
It’s a very worthy cause and it felt good being able to do something to help the local community.
