Snow chains ensure a smooth service this Christmas

Published 9 December 2015

 

30 sets of snow chains are being purchased by WDH this month as part of our preparations for the winter period.

Between December 2014 and February 2015 we received 12,325 calls relating to repair and maintenance jobs, with similar numbers anticipated this season.

Martin Wilson, WDH Maintenance Manager, said: “The Met office has already issued snow warnings and with responsibility for maintaining over 40,000 homes, we need to make sure that if the weather turns we’re in a position to respond quickly to emergency situations out of hours.

“If a pipe bursts at one of the homes we maintain, the chains will mean that our tradesmen are able to deliver services in times of heavy or prolonged snowfall. Not only does this help us maintain our services over the winter months, it also gives reassurance to our customers that we’re prepared for the onset of wintery weather.”

Tenants experiencing any problems with their property should report the repair online.

WDH runners raised over £2000 for Wakefield Hospice

Published 22 April 2016

Runners from across the various business areas at WDH braved the rain and raised over £2000 for Wakefield Hospice by taking part in their annual Wakefield 10k road race earlier this month.

WDH had the largest group on the day with over 25 runners taking part in the event. While some of the runners were experienced others were new to it,  but they all spent hours after work and on weekends training to prepare for the big day.

Keeley Harrison, Wakefield Hospice’s Fundraising Manager, said: “We are over the moon with the number of people who entered the Wakefield 10K this year. With 2,000 runners taking part in the 10K and 1K mini run we are expecting to raise lots of sponsorship money which will make a difference to patients and their family’s here at Wakefield Hospice. For every £20 raised in sponsorship we are able to fund one hour of care – making a huge difference to someone living with an end of life diagnosis. We are so thankful to all the runners for joining us on this important day for Wakefield.”
