An end of year charity round up

As we’re coming to the end of the year we thought it would be a good time to reflect on a charity or two we’ve been fortunate enough to work with and alongside over the last twelve months. We have either donated to or been involved in events with these charities.

We have already written blogs about these great causes before, so for more information you can check them out on the links throughout this post.

Animals of Hope

One of the first charities we sponsored is Animals of Hope. We have done a lot of work with this great cause over the years. We were more than happy to continue our partnership in 2016.

The organisation is an animal cruelty prevention group based in Cornwall. The non-profit organisation work in their local community raising awareness of cruelty to dogs.

Earlier this year they became a registered charity.

Braunstone Community Carnival 

We love to work with some of the great causes which work in our local community. We were delighted to have been able to sponsor a local community carnival in Leicester this summer.

The Leicester-based charity B-inspired organised the summer carnival which included a talent show with local acts, community and craft stalls, food stalls, a children’s play area and a family-friendly fun fair.

At the time, Angie Wright from the charity said about the carnival: ““Our main aim is to help local people who have experienced difficulties in life move on and improve their situations.

“This fantastic carnival provides a very low cost chance for families to come and enjoy fun activities and pick up information on local services.

“The carnival has always been a source of community pride and people really view it as a special occasion. We really believe that this event presents a great opportunity for social benefits to residents of Leicester and the surrounding area.”

Soft Touch Artscmpe4izwgae25ax-345x258

A second local charity we worked closely with was Soft Touch Arts. The Leicester-based charity are an award-winning organisation which uses arts, media and music activates as tools to engage and change the lives of disadvantaged young people in the area.

We provided promotional merchandise such as balloons for a fundraising BBQ this summer. Thankfully the British weather behaved and the event went down well.

Yorkshire Ambulance Service

We have worked with more than these four charities, but the Yorkshire Ambulance Service Charitable Fund is where we’ll end this recap.

We both donated a handful of promotional merchandise and supplied them with 25,000 bags with pens, wristbands and more. The goody-bags were used for a fantastic campaign called Restart a Heart. The campaign’s goal is to teach around 25,000 young people all over Yorkshire the knowledge of how to perform CPR.

We have also recently carried out a quick interview with the fine folks at the Yorkshire Ambulance Service Charitable Fund. You can find that here.

This is only a snapshot of the fantastic causes we work with. We update our charity part of the blog site regularly. Head here to see some of the other causes we’ve not been able to squeeze into this post.
