Quality Management training provider rove, has marked a major milestone in its business by donating to a local hospice. To celebrate the successful completion of its 1000 CQI and IRCA certified course, rove asked the learner who achieved this to nominate a charity to receive a donation.

Daniel Dews, who is currently studying foundation courses in Quality Management, completed the 1000 course.  He asked for the contribution to be made to North East based, St Oswald’s Hospice, in memory of his mother.

QA Officer, at Merit, Daniel said; “I’ve chosen St Oswald’s Hospice as my mam, Maureen Dews, worked there as a palliative care nurse for a great number of years.

“After spending her career providing end of life care, she sadly lost her battle with cancer eight years ago. I’d like to make this kind donation in her loving memory.”

St Oswald’s Hospice which provides specialist and expert care to adults and children with life-limiting conditions, was grateful to receive the £250 donation.  The donation will help its teams to provide care, comfort and support to families at what might be the most difficult time of their lives.

Director of rove, Jacky Wilson said, “For over 13 years we have supported quality management professionals develop and progress in their careers.  Our team has supported over 500 learners, from over 345 companies worldwide, to now successfully complete 1000 quality management courses.

“We wanted to celebrate the occasion in some way, and decided to ask the person who completed our 1000 course to nominate a charity.

“It was so heart-warming to hear Daniel had chosen St Oswald’s Hospice. We’re really pleased to mark our milestone with a donation in his mother’s memory.”

As a charity, St Oswald’s Hospice relies on the kindness of the community to help raise the funds it needs to keep its services open and free to those who need it.  To find out more, or to make a donation, visit the St Oswald’s Hospice website.
