We are delighted that we have been able to help transform the lives of disabled and terminally ill children across the Midlands by donating more than £4,000 to Newlife the Charity for Disabled Children over the last two years.
Selecting the Staffordshire based organisation as our charity partner, our team members have taken part in a variety of fundraising activities throughout the last two years, raising more than £2,000 for the charity. Adding to the funds, the company has matched this achievement with a donation of £2,000.
In addition to cake sales and raffles that we put on in the office, some of our staff went above any beyond for the cause, taking part in half marathons, inflatable runs and cycling challenges, all in aid of raising much needed funds for Newlife.
Newlife – which is based in Cannock, Staffordshire – is the UK’s largest charity provider of specialist equipment for children with disabilities and terminal illness and has supported 952 families in Staffordshire, with equipment in excess of £1million.
Our Marketing Director, Tim Handy, commented: “We wanted to choose a charity that helps our local community and Newlife is such a worthwhile charity, we are proud to have been able to support the fantastic work that it does. Everyone here has really got behind the charity over the last two years and whether it is buying a cake or a raffle ticket, or taking part in a sporting challenge, it has been great to see the whole team get involved and help raise much needed funds.”
