Festive kindness from H Bell & Sons

Date published: 28 December 2020

In lieu of Christmas activities this year, employees at local construction firm H Bell & Sons have donated funds to local charities.

Some of the recipients included The Soup Kitchen Rochdale, to help support the Christmas Day meals made and delivered; WHAG (formerly Women’s Housing Action Group), which gifted Christmas pamper hampers and cosy dressing gowns to their clients; and Springhill Hospice to support the incredible services provided.  

Employees wore their woollies for work on Friday 11 December for the hospice’s annual winter fundraiser campaign as well as sponsoring Springhill’s Light Up A Life event.


Lots of selection boxes


H Bell & Sons has also supported local schools throughout the festive season, delivering selection boxes for the pupils, as well as sponsoring Rochdale In Bloom’s Christmas tree at Cutgate.

The firm also donated a crate full of toys to the council toy appeal.
