ECHO are very fortunate to have formed a successful partnership with the Victoria Offices of the John Lewis Partnership in recent years.
They have helped ECHO with a variety of different projects, raising thousands of pounds as well as sharing skills and expertise from their workforce, and allowing their employees to volunteer on different projects.
One team from their Head Office took part in a cycling challenge that raised enough money for ECHO to invest in the UK’s first full-time Cardiac Family Support Worker – whose sole purpose is to support families of children experiencing extremely difficult circumstances in the community and in the hospital.
In 2015, the Partnership also stepped in and helped us to redecorate a special room for teenagers at St Thomas’ Hospital, The Edward Mansell Room continues to be of huge value to many young people.
More recently John Lewis have helped to establish our new office by providing us with some furniture and office materials and even sent us volunteers to help paint for a day!
ECHO thank the staff of the John Lewis Partnership for their ongoing support and look forward to working with them on future projects.
