ABC Managed Services raises £5500 for The Donna Louise
A team of budding mountaineers from ABC Managed Services have taken on the 3 Peaks Challenge for the children, young adults and families who use the services of The Donna Louise and raised a fantastic £5500.
Since 2012, the team at ABC have donated over £30,000 to the Hospice, which provides a lifeline to hundreds of families across Staffordshire and South Cheshire who are facing every parent’s worst nightmare; the heart-breaking knowledge that they will almost certainly outlive their child.
“The ABC 3 Peaks Team picked up its fair share of bumps and bruises during the 24-hour challenge,” said ABC marketing director, Toni Gibiino.
“But it was worth it when you see what a fantastic role in the local community the Donna Louise are doing day in, day out.”
Steve Burgess, ABC’s managing director, has already set his sights on the next endurance challenge for the company, once again in support of The Donna Louise.
And Katie Tams, area fundraiser at The Donna Louise, thanked “Steve, Toni and their team of superheroes” at ABC Managed Services.
“We rely almost entirely on the support of the local community to offer a wide range of care services to hundreds of families across Staffordshire and Cheshire. Without the support of our local business community we simply would not be able to continue offering our services. So, thank you team ABC!”

More about Donna Louise
Since being established in 1999, The Donna Louise Children’s Hospice provides respite care and so much more, to children and young adults living with life-limiting conditions, as well as to their families.
ABC’s Steve Burgess said: “I feel very privileged to be involved in raising much needed funding and highlighting the amazing work Donna Louise does”.
“Donna Louise adds light at the darkest hour to our children, young people and families in need. They truly care about making a difference.”– Steve Burgess, ABC MD
The Donna Louise team recognise that caring for a child or young adult with complex needs is an uphill struggle for any family, so they offer all-important respite breaks, allowing families to recharge their batteries while their loved ones are happy and safe.
Indeed, those young people who stay at The Donna Louise’s custom-built facility say it’s like “being on holiday”.
