Liverpool civil and structural engineering firm Sutcliffe raises more than £50,000 at charity ball

Sutcliffe raised £50,000 at a charity ball at the Rum Warehouse in April 2023


A charity ball held in Liverpool by civil and structural engineering firm Sutcliffe has raised more than £50,000 for a Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust project.

Held at the Titanic Hotel’s Rum Warehouse, guests made generous bids for auction prizes including Eurovision tickets, a signed Pelé and Muhammad Ali print, plus signed Liverpool and Everton shirts.

Sutcliffe’s aim was to raise £50,000 for the Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust SWAN model. This supports patients and their families with individualised end-of-life and bereavement care.

The firm has worked on multiple healthcare projects including Liverpool Royal, the Women’s, Arrowe Park, Clatterbridge and Aintree hospitals and further afield. This charity ball was an opportunity for the company to give back to the NHS.

Director of nursing at LUHFT and founder of the SWAN model, Fiona Murphy, was also in attendance on the night. Funds raised will also be invested into the NHS and its end-of-life care teams.

Sean Keyes, managing director of Sutcliffe, said: “No matter your age, the NHS will have helped you in one way or another, whether that be at the start or the end of life.

“At Sutcliffe, we have always cared about the communities we work within and our charity ball was our way of saying thank you and giving back to an organisation that has helped millions of lives throughout the last 75 years.

“I’m overjoyed that we were able to surpass our target of £50,000 for the Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and its SWAN model.

“It is such a worthy cause and the ball was a wonderful example of a community digging deep and going the extra mile to support its NHS and celebrate the inspiring work it does.”

Fiona Murphy added: “The SWAN model will vastly improve the experience for the patients and their loved ones at an extremely difficult time.”
