West Yorkshire’s Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice welcomed The Myers Group to its Platinum Partners Consortium, as the Kirklees Top 100 company pledged its long-term support for the charity’s vital work across the region.
With just a fraction of the funds it needs coming from the government, Forget Me Not must raise over £5m in charitable donations this year to ensure it can give children and families the support needed.
By making a regular financial commitment to support Forget Me Not, The Myers Group and other local businesses provide a stable and reliable source of support, allowing the hospice to plan and budget with confidence.
The Myers Group
The Myers Group is a fourth-generation family-owned group of companies based in Huddersfield, providing products, services, and materials to the construction industry.
The company, which employs over 350 people across the Yorkshire region, originates back to 1929 and is responsible for the supply of materials to Emley Mast, sections of the M62 motorway, Huddersfield University, and the National Maritime Museum in London.
