We raise £2000 for Home-start

We are delighted to be supporting Home-start as our charity of the year! Home-start is one of the leading family support charities in the UK, supporting 30,000 families across the UK. They help families with young children deal with the challenges they face and help them to get back on their feet. They support parents who are struggling to cope, helping them to improve their confidence and build better lives for their children.

Sasha Deepwell, CEO said: “We chose Home-start as it is a cause that rings close to our hearts, we experience first-hand how many families struggle to get by and we work closely with charities and support agencies like Home-start to help our customers in need.

It’s fantastic to see our colleagues get stuck in with our fundraising. A fantastic Halloween event and our Christmas festivities have seen us raise £2000 in the last two months alone! We have lots planned for the new year, including a 10K race in May. We hope that our support will truly make a difference to families.”

The money raised will help the 6 million children that are living in poverty in the UK, the 93,000 children that live in care and the 2 million children who are affected by domestic violence.
