Civil and structural engineering firm, Sutcliffe, raises over £65,000 at annual charity ball for the Liverpool Women’s Hospital Charity and the Dementia and Delirium team at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital

Civil and structural engineering firm, Sutcliffe, proudly hosted its charity ball at the Titanic Hotel’s Rum Warehouse on April 19, with auction prizes including a signed Muhammed Ali boxing glove, a 7-night stay in Praia Da Luz and a once in a lifetime skydiving experience, plus signed Liverpool, Everton and Wrexham memorabilia.

Sutcliffe aimed to raise over £60,000, half of which will help the Liverpool Women’s Hospital purchase a new incubator for the neonatal unit, while the other half will help fund a designated area for dementia patients, designed to give them a break from the hospital ward and enjoy specialist activities to support their care and recovery at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital. Surpassing its initial target, Sutcliffe raised over £65,000 on the night of the charity ball.

Celebrated as a leader in the healthcare sector, Sutcliffe boasts a stellar portfolio including medical centres, extra care facilities, A&E centres and major hospital sites across the North West, including the Royal Liverpool University Hospital, Liverpool Women’s Hospital and a new state of the art mental health facility at Mossley Hill Hospital. The charity ball was another opportunity for the business to give back to the NHS and the inspiring individuals who work in it.

Jennifer Deeney, Head of Neonatal Nursing and Liverpool Neonatal Partnerships at Liverpool Women’s Hospital, and David Melia, Director of Nursing at Liverpool University Hospital were also present on the night, as was Louise Collier and her husband, Peter, who was the inspiration behind why the Liverpool-based company chose to support Liverpool Women’s Hospital Charity.

Austin Wilkinson Demolition and EES Contracts were both headline sponsors of the evening, with further sponsors being Butterworth Spengler, Fox Information Technology, The Momentum Group, Tilbury Douglas and Seddon Construction.

Sean Keyes, CEO at Sutcliffe, said:

“At Sutcliffe, we have always cared about the communities we work within and our charity ball was our way of saying thank you and giving back to an organisation that not only helped our structural engineer, Louise, but also the millions of people who have used its services. I’m very happy that we surpassed our target of £60,000 for two incredibly worthy causes.”
