Employees at Perkins Engines Company Limited’s Peterborough and Manchester facilities have chosen Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and South Lincolnshire (CPSL) Mind and Sue Ryder as the company’s new charity partners.

The charity partnerships with CPSL Mind and Sue Ryder started on January 1, 2021 and will run for two years. During this time, Perkins will support employee fundraising and volunteering activities, including through a matching funds programme. 

“We are delighted to have been chosen along with Sue Ryder as Charity of the Year by Perkins and to have been chosen from a staff vote makes it extra special,” said Emily Gray, deputy chief executive at CPSL Mind. “The money raised from this partnership will go towards helping local people with their mental health needs including those in mental health crisis. We are greatly looking forward to working with Perkins on this charitable partnership.”

Nilesh Patel, senior community fundraiser at Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice added: “Everyone here at the hospice is thrilled to hear the news that we have been chosen as Perkins’ charity partner for the next two years. The power of this collaboration will help us to continue providing our compassionate palliative care for people with life-limiting conditions throughout Peterborough and the surrounding areas. We are passionate about what we do and through services such as our specialist inpatient unit, hospice at home team and family and bereavement support, we are there for local families at the most difficult times of their lives.”

For the last two years Perkins has partnered with Cancer Research UK and Anna’s Hope, raising more than £35,000 for the two charities.
