Blackpool sign maker pledges support to local children’s hospice

Links has been helping Brian House and Trinity Hospice to rebrand all its charity shops

A Blackpool sign maker has pledged support to its local children’s hospice by promoting its services on one of its vans.

Links Signs and Graphics will make a donation to Brian House Children’s Hospice for every new customer that comes in as a result of its new advertising.

Links has been working with Brian House and Trinity Hospice over the last year to rebrand all its charity shops around the Fylde Coast, but Links staff have been inspired to go even further with their support by helping to spread the word of the work done at Brian House and to make what they hope will be regular donations to the children’s hospice.

Links Managing Director Shaun Bennett said: “Brian House is almost like the Fylde coast’s little secret – you probably don’t know about it unless you have reason and we just want to do what we can for those children and their families who do need it, and who might need it in the future.

“We got involved with Trinity Hospice and Brian House as part of the charity’s rebrand, and installed new signs for their 16 shops across Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre, but we knew there was more we could do to help.

“We had a look around the amazing facility they have in Bispham and were just blown away. We hope anyone who needs our services will help us to make a difference at Brian House. We will donate a percentage of any new sale by any new customer who comes to us as a result of seeing our newly branded van to the children’s hospice to help our area’s most fragile children.”

Brian House Clinical Manager Carol Wylde said: “The new hospice shops out in the community look fabulous with the new branding for Brian House and Trinity Hospice. But for Links to take their support one step further and offer a donation for every new customer is just wonderful.

“We are incredibly grateful to the team over there for their ongoing support, and for helping to share our story so more people get to know about our amazing children and young people, and the work we do for them and their family to make every moment truly special.”
