We’re pleased to announce that we’ve donated nearly £10,000 to six amazing local charities.
Fairplay, St. Luke’s Hospice Sheffield, Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, The Children’s Hospital Charity, Ashgate Hospice and Paces will benefit from the funds raised through the Redbrik Foundation.
After hosting and supporting many charity events over the years, creating our very own Foundation felt like the natural next step. We set up the Redbrik Foundation in 2020 to help children, young people, the elderly and those with disabilities in the Sheffield and Chesterfield areas.
Naturally, since the Foundation was set up in 2020, restrictions have limited the number of in-person fundraising events. However, our ever-dedicated team have come up with new and exciting ways to generate support for the Foundation and its charities at a time when they need it most.
We’ve organised virtual events and challenges, as well as donations of Christmas presents to Sheffield Children’s Hospital two years running so that every patient receives a gift during the festive season.
Our team tackled the gruelling Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge earlier this year, raising over £4,000, and we held the very first – and very successful – Redbrik Foundation Chesterfield 10k in October. In addition, donations were raised through a match funding initiative whereby clients of Redbrik are given the option to donate £25 to the Foundation, which the company then matches.
Redbrik Foundation Trustee, David Cooper, commented: “This is a proud day for every one and thank you to anyone who has promoted, donated to or fundraised for the Foundation in the last year. One hundred per cent of all money raised is donated back out into the community to support the incredible work these organisations carry out every day.
“Rather than have a changing list of annual charity partners, we’ve decided instead that we’d rather have an ever-growing list of amazing charities to support, so watch this space!”
