ETI Charity Donations 2022
Throughout 2022, Electronic Temperature Instruments (ETI) has supported a number of local organisations that help improve the lives of vulnerable people in our community. Learn more about each donation below.
32 people completed the walk, including five members of ETI staff and the charity raised over £8,000. All the money raised is helping Guild Care to continue offering its outstanding services to the people of Worthing and the surrounding area, and ETI was very proud to be involved.
We have raised further funds for the charity by participating in their annual Golf Day in June, and staff wore their festive knits in December to support their Christmas Jumper Day.
ETI is supporting Turning Tides again this winter, and we thoroughly enjoyed volunteering at their Worthing donation hub on 20th December.
Andy Reid (QA) and Stephanie Hughes (Marketing) joined the Turning Tides team and helped prepare Happiness Hampers, which will be offered to their clients over Christmas.
The hampers will help spread a bit of festive cheer during a very difficult time.
Love Your Hospital
We were also delighted to support Love Your Hospital this Christmas by donating toys and games to Bluefin Children’s Ward at Worthing Hospital.
The donations included Lego, craft sets, board games, puzzles and play-doh sets. They were presented to John Price (Corporate and Community Fundraiser for the charity) and Becky Holcroft (Paediatric Matron) on the ward. The toys and books will hopefully provide some joy amongst the poorly children on the ward over Christmas and make their stay a little more bearable.
Earlier in the year, ETI also donated to Love Your Hospital to fund a medical-grade gaming cart for Bluefin Children’s Ward. The gaming cart, made by small national charity TheRockinR, was delivered in the Summer. Glen Greeney (IT) and David Northmore (Sales) attended the official handover on the ward.
ETI has enjoyed raising money for Love Your Hospital for many years, and we were pleased to support their fundraising efforts again. Each gaming cart helps healthcare professionals and play specialists provide much-needed play and recreation to children and young people in the hospital or visiting as an outpatient.
IR thermometers for cancer patients
During the Autumn months, ETI donated nearly 900 Infrared Forehead Thermometers to Macmillan Cancer Support, University Hospitals Sussex, Worthing Hospital, and Sussex Cancer Trust.
Cancer is something that has sadly touched many of our lives, so we jumped at the opportunity to be able to support local people living with cancer. Temperature monitoring is vital to identify neutropenic sepsis in cancer patients, which can be deadly if left untreated.
Our donation of infrared thermometers enables patients who need them most or who may not be able to afford them, access to this crucial monitoring equipment.
Sompting Big Local
In light of the energy and cost of living crisis, ETI donated 250 x Infrared Forehead Thermometers and 1,080 AAA batteries to Sompting Big Local, a Lancing-based charity.
These items, alongside other useful things such as travel mugs, thermal socks and gloves, fleece blankets and LED torches, will be used to create 125 Warm Wellness bags for vulnerable and elderly residents in the local community.
Supplies for Ukraine
Each business collected supplies for children and babies, non-perishable food items, necessary toiletries, and basic first aid provisions. ETI donated sleeping bags, blankets, trek mats and backpacks.
Huge thanks again to everyone who donated so generously.
