Our Employee Committee nominates a charity to support and currently our local nominated charity is The Rosemary Appeal. By focusing on the one charity to fundraise for, we can have a greater impact to the lives of local people.

The Rosemary Appeal is striving to raise £4.5 million to build and populate the Rosemary Centre at West Berkshire Community Hospital with staff and equipment. Currently, patients suffering from advanced illnesses such as Cancer and Renal disease have to travel to Reading, Oxford, Swindon and even further afield to Southampton and London to receive treatment.

On occasions EPC do donate a raffle prize for local charity events so forward on the email and we might be able to help
