Critical Care Unit gets funding boost from big-hearted Staffordshire company and its employees

Thousands of pounds have been donated for new life-saving equipment thanks to the kind-hearted employees working at Water Plus and the company's match-funding.
UHNM Charity will use the money to purchase equipment for the Critical Care Unit at the Royal Stoke University Hospital.
The fundraising started after Adam Thirlwall, a Water Plus employee, was cared for at the Critical Care Unit but sadly lost his fight for life in August last year.
In total £3,000 was donated by friends, family and many people at Water Plus, through an online page and collections in the Water Plus head office. Water Plus kindly added over £3,400.
Steve Rushton, UHNM Charity Manager, said: “We are incredibly grateful to Water Plus for their generous donation towards the Critical Care Unit at the Royal Stoke University Hospital. The money will be used to purchase new life-saving equipment and help our staff provide the highest standard of care to some of our sickest patients. On behalf of everyone at UHNM Charity, I would like to thank Water Plus for this donation which will be of benefit to so many members of our local community.”
Andy Hughes, Chief Executive of Water Plus, said: “Supporting our local community is really important to our great people who work for us - as well as our business too. We were all incredibly sad when we heard the news about Adam - and donating money to help the Critical Care Unit felt like the right thing to do. Our people are passionate about helping the local community and making a difference for deprived families and we’ve seen this help charities so they can help others, in their essential work which is needed so much at this time.”
