Ingevity donates to St. Rocco’s Hospice for upgrades to facility
WARRINGTON, UNITED KINGDOM, June 16, 2022 – Ingevity employees presented a donation of £22,787.40 to keystone partner, St. Rocco’s Hospice, on June 7, 2022. The donation, made through the company’s IngeviCares community outreach program, enables construction of a new bathroom facility within St. Rocco’s ten bed in-patient unit.

The organization focuses on supporting patients physically, psychologically, and emotionally to enable them to live the lives they want for as long as possible.
“We can’t thank Ingevity enough,” said Nicola Henshaw, fundraising manager at St. Rocco’s Hospice. “We will use the donation to renovate our bathrooms at the hospice – it will make such a difference to those who stay with us.”
