Helping charities and giving something back to the community has always been an important part of our brand values here at Chorus. Over the years we have supported a number of different charities through various fundraising activities and this year we have decided to focus on one charity to support throughout 2016.
We asked our staff to nominate charities that were close to their hearts before putting the list to a final company-wide vote. We are delighted to announce that our chosen charity for 2016 is the Children's Hospice South West.
Children's Hospice South West help support children and their families from Bristol and surrounding areas who are living with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions. 2016 marks a special occasion, as they celebrate their 25th anniversary, so we are especially excited to be involved. To find out more about Children's Hospice South West, please visit http://www.chsw.org.uk/ for more information.
We have a number of exciting fundraising ideas already - from cake sales to the more exciting challenges like skydiving and raft races! We can't wait to start fundraising for such a worthwhile, local cause that we feel strongly about and we will be sharing all the developments with you on social media.
To stay up to date with our fundraising follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook or help by donating on our fundraising page. We have chosen to fundraise via Virgin Money Giving because it is the preferred site for Children's Hospice South West. This is because it is 100% not-for-profit, has no monthly charges for the charity and does not charge on Gift Aid, which gives a better deal for charities.
We will be holding a raffle in coming months and would appreciate any prize donations. If you would like to donate a prize, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
