One of the most enjoyable parts of the new year for the team at Grosvenor is to finalise our charity fundraising campaigns. Over the past 3-years we have been delighted to support Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW), a charity that provide hospice care for children and families who live in the South West. In 2021 the total raised was £4,622.47 which in turn has taken our total charity contributions since we started in 2019 to £19,274.24.
Ben Olson, Grosvenor Managing Director is delighted that everybody has agreed to support CHSW again. He comments, “to have been able to recently provide another charity donation to CHSW as a result of the fantastic effort from all of our employees has been another company highlight. What is even more rewarding is the fact that everybody was unanimous and wanted to again commit to raising more funds for the charity again this year. We know that we can break the £20K barrier and will be pushing to see how close we can get to the £25k mark.”
Some of the fundraising plans the Grosvenor team have agreed to are:
- Business Club – the charity are looking for 300 companies to become part of their Business Club, the membership costs £300 and naturally we have already signed-up. – https://www.chsw.org.uk/get-involved/corporate-partnerships/business-club-2022
- Jail & Bail – following in the footsteps of Tom Burley who completed this back in 2019 (https://www.grosvenorconsultancy.co.uk/spooktakular-jail-bale-update/), we will be encouraging one of our employees to take part in this hugely entertaining courtroom event which sees fundraisers arrested, charged with their crimes (entirely fictitious, of course) and then placed on trial – https://www.chsw.org.uk/event/group/jail-bail
- Other events currently in the planning process are a Golf Day and a sporting dinner and of course more details will be provided when they have been finalised.
Children’s Hospice South West provide hospice care for children and families who live in the South West from their three hospices across the region; Barnstable, Bristol and St Austell. They provide care for children and young people aged 0 – 21 years with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions which mean that they are not expected to survive into adulthood.
For over 25 years, their care and support has provided a wide range of services for families in the South West including specialist palliative care, respite for the entire family, a sibling service for brothers and sisters, end of life care and a bereavement service for as long as they are needed.
