Charity of the Year

Posted: 29/11/2019

Each year we support a local charity and hold multiple events to fundraise for them. We are very proud to have supported Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsawthis year. Eden Valley Hospice provide palliative care for people with incurable or life limiting illnesses in Cumbria. The staff go above and beyond to fulfil their inpatients wishes and to help create memories that their loved ones can treasure.

Earlier in the year we held a Race Day at Carlisle Racecourse in Aid of the Hospice. There was a lovely atmosphere in the room and it was great to look around and see everyone enjoying themselves. This was down to the events team at Carlisle Racecourse, who we can’t thank enough for their help and support to ensure the day was a success. Not only did we have a fantastic day but those who attended really did get behind Eden Valley Hospice and we raised an incredible £5,690.

On the 3rd of September Rachael Bell Wealth Management joined forces with Burnetts and The Cumberland and held an Inter- Professional Golf Day at Close House. Everyone had their ‘competitive heads on’ for the bragging rights of saying that they were the winning team. Each team raised funds for their chosen charity, we are pleased to have raised a total of £4,510 for Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw.

We are delighted to announce that "The Rock Youth Project" is our 2020 charity of the year.  The work that they do to help and support the children in socially and economically deprived areas is amazing. The charity provides a warm and safe place to go on an evening by running youth clubs for children from Currock, Harraby and Upperby, which come at no cost to attend. The staff give the children care and attention that they may not receive at home as well as teaching the children basic life skills such as cooking and gardening.

The Rock launched their fundraising challenge on Wednesday 30th October. At the moment the Rock resides in damp sheds, this does not dampen the spirit of all those involved but a new purpose built premises is crucial for the charity to continue. The challenge is to raise the requisite £180,000 for their dream of a safe haven for children in desperate need to come true.

Throughout 2020 we will hold different events to support the Rock Youth Project and help to make their aspirations come true. Keep your eyes peeled for our annual Race Day aswell as our office Queen- Gemma Brodie skydiving.
