hill and powerday donate £20,000 and join foreces for children in need 2023


Award-winning housebuilder The Hill Group and waste management and recycling business Powerday have teamed up to raise money for this year’s BBC Children in Need. A brightly coloured skip, decorated with Pudsey-themed spots, recently toured London to raise awareness in the run-up to the big event on Friday, 17th November. The family-owned companies have collectively contributed £20,000 to the appeal, with each donating £10,000.

In keeping with this year’s BBC Children in Need theme, ‘Be Spotacular’, the large, 16-yard skip was transported on the back of a lorry, stopping at iconic London destinations, including the London Eye, Twickenham Stadium, and The Houses of Parliament. Billy the Bear, Hill’s much-loved mascot, met the team from Hill and Powerday during the skip’s visit to Lampton Parkside, Hill, and Notting Hill Genesis’ landmark residential development of studio, one, two, and three-bedroom apartments and duplexes in Hounslow.

Andy Hill OBE, Group Chief Executive at The Hill Group, comments: “We are proud to have supported BBC Children in Need for many years and are delighted to be working with Powerday to raise funds towards the incredible efforts of this year’s charity appeal. We encourage anyone who can to further donate to this worthwhile cause.”

Edward Crossan, CEO at Powerday, comments: “Supporting communities is an integral value at Powerday and over the last four years, BBC Children in Need has been one of our chosen charities to fundraise for. We are proud to work with The Hill Group to raise funds and awareness for this important charity, whose valuable work helps improve the lives of young people living in the UK.”

The BBC Children in Need appeal takes place on Friday, 17th November. As one of the UK’s most recognisable charities, it funds grassroots organisations and project workers across the UK that support children and young people. Its mission is to ensure every child has the childhood they deserve and the support they need to thrive.
