Wenta staff and businesses based at The Wenta Business Centre, Watford have raised over £550 for local charity, Peace Hospice Care - an organisation dedicated to improving the quality of life for patients and families facing a life limiting illness by providing care and support.
On the 25th July, the Wenta team held a ‘fish and chips business community event and raffle’ in aid of Peace Hospice Care, an occasion to bring the 40+ small businesses based at the centre together for networking and food in the sun.
Earlier in the month, the staff team at Wenta took part in a group fundraising ‘sing-off’ at their Away Day, where all teams performed a song of their choice. The winning team sung their own version of The Backstreet Boys’ ‘I Want It That Way’ and chose Peace Hospice Care as their chosen charity also.

Donna Colbourne, Centre Manager at Wenta's Watford business centre, commented:
“We’re so pleased to be able to donate this great amount to such an excellent charity providing amazing community support. Here at Wenta, our ethos is all about helping local businesses and communities and this stretches outside of The Wenta Business Centre network too. Thank you so much to all our clients based at the centre that donated so generously as well.”
Senior Corporate Fundraising Manager, Gemma Norris at Peace Hospice Care says:
“We are so grateful for Wenta’s continued support and contribution which will have a real impact on our patients and their families. The team at Wenta are a pleasure to work with and it’s clear to see how dedicated they are to supporting the local community. We want to thank everyone who attended and contributed to these fundraising events, we’re so grateful for your support. We’re looking forward to growing our relationship with Wenta and the Wenta Business Network.”
The £550 is on its way over to Peace Hospice Care and Wenta are planning a number of charitable events across their other centres in the forthcoming months.
