Door4’s adopted charities are Pendleside Hospice and the ITP Support Association. Whenever we can raise money (by baking cakes or doing fun runs) or save money through environmental good practice (like sending digital Christmas cards), we donate to these charities.
Pendleside, based in Lancashire, delivers specialist and holistic palliative care, promoting and enhancing quality of life for people with life-limiting illnesses, and their families and carers. It receives only a small percentage of its funding from the government, so relies heavily on fundraising, donations and proceeds from its lottery.
Immune Thrombocytopenia is a rare autoimmune disorder that causes a shortage of platelets in blood. Lee Tomblin, a talented web developer and long-time member of the Door4 team, had ITP. Sadly, Lee died in 2020 from COVID-19. Our donations in his memory will help this tiny charity continue to support people with ITP and their families.
