Huddersfield facilities management specialists Orchard FM and FM Energy have joined forces to provide festival shirts for all those taking part in this year’s Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice Colour Run.
FM Energy has also been announced as the charity’s new energy management and brokerage partner, building on a long-term partnership with Orchard FM which has enabled the hospice to manage its costs over many years.
Gareth Henderson, founder of Orchard FM and FM Energy said the sponsorship recognised a long and fruitful relationship with Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice, dating back to its earliest days before Russell House was built.
“We have been inspired by the passion and commitment of everyone involved in the charity since we first became involved all those years ago,” said Gareth.
“We are proud to have been able to support them throughout with operational and facilities management, IT infrastructure and cost control to make sure as much of their hard-earned budget as possible goes directly to patient and family care.”
Orchard FM offers complete estates and facilities management services for businesses and organisations in Calderdale and Kirklees including maintenance, compliance, waste and recycling, IT and data security. FM Energy was recently launched to provide energy purchasing, efficiency and bill management services to further help local firms manage their costs.
Forget Me Not provides care and support to local children with life-shortening conditions and their families in West Yorkshire.
Nicola O’Dowd, Finance and Corporate Services Director, at Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice, said: “We’re thrilled to have the backing of Orchard FM and FM Energy for the Colour Run Festival and the expertise of their teams to help us minimise spending on energy, waste, IT, estates management and compliance.”
“The logos on the shirts signify much more than sponsorship of this event – they represent a longstanding and flourishing relationship that has made a tangible difference to the hospice over many years and continues to do so.”
There is still time to pre-register for this year’s event which will include entry into the Festival Zone with family entertainment, music, face painting, street food vans and more. Pre-registration closes on Friday June 15 but on the day registrations are also accepted.
Participants can run, jog, walk or dance their way around the 4K rainbow route at Farnley Estate on June 30 wearing the t-shirts featuring the dual logos of both businesses.
