We like to think of ourselves as jolly nice people, and we are all more than aware of how lucky we are.
So, every year, we promise to make a chunky donation to good causes. And besides which, raising money is good fun (it’s also a great excuse to dress up and get together). Even the family pets get roped in to help out.
Our chosen charity is Zoё’s Place, based in Coventry. One of the only baby specific Hospices in the UK, they do amazing work providing palliative, respite and end-of-life care to babies and infants aged from birth to five years old suffering from life-limiting or life-threatening conditions. They rely on public support to raise the £1.3 million a year that’s needed to keep the doors open.
Happy to help, we’ve been raising funds in fun ways such as our own Great Arden’s Bake Off, running the Coventry half marathon and supporting the Hospice’s annual fund raising ball.
