For the past few years, TWI has swapped conventional Christmas cards to go digital - and we now wish our customers and contacts season's greetings electronically instead with an e-card.

Not only is this friendlier towards the environment, it’s also more cost-effective, and allows the money saved on physical cards to be spent in other ways.

Amongst other charities*, this year TWI decided to generously donate to Sheffield Children’s Hospital, to assist with their appeal for a bigger and better A&E department, cancer and leukaemia ward and helipad. 

Sheffield Children’s Hospital is one of only four dedicated children’s hospital trusts in the UK and provides integrated healthcare for 0-19 year-olds, including specialist treatments and surgeries such as bone marrow transplants.

In return for the donation, TWI received an illuminated ‘snowflake’ displayed in the window of ­­­­­the AMRC building, across the road from TWI Technology Centre (Yorkshire). Every year, the sponsored snowflakes (which are forged from local steel) create a festive and sparkling display throughout Sheffield and become a real talking point for the city.
