The Ascot Group raised more than £11,000 for charity in 2019, to add to the tens of thousands of pounds we’ve raised over the years. This Christmas, all three of our businesses will be spreading the Christmas cheer far and wide.
At the Ascot Group we regularly take part in fundraising events and raise money for charity, and this year we are donating £3,000 to good causes this Christmas.
We are giving each business – Purplex, Insight Data and Business Leader – £1,000 each in charity donations to give to a charity of their choice, providing a fitting end to our fundraising activities for 2019.
Making a wish come true
In the past, Purplex has sent our customers a small Christmas gift to see in the festive season, but this year, the company is doing something different by donating £1,000 to Make A Wish.
A Purplex-designed Christmas card, signed from everyone from the company, and email will be sent to clients instead.
Make-A-Wish UK was formed to grant life-changing wishes to children with critical illnesses, whether it’s walking with dinosaurs, going on an amazing holiday or meeting a celebrity hero.
A Christmas dinner for those in need
Christmas time wouldn’t be the same without The Salvation Army.
And this year Insight Data will be donating its £1,000 to the charity to give more than 400 people a Christmas dinner.
With more than 700 Salvation Army centres across the UK, the Salvation Army will be in local communities ensuring that vulnerable people get the happy Christmas they might otherwise have missed out on.
Weston charities supported
In Charley’s memory provides low cost counselling for children and young people who are experiencing mental health difficulties, while Feed the Homeless has been providing food to the homeless in Weston and Bristol since 2016.
Looking ahead to 2020
Our newly-formed Ascot Community Team (ACT) have come up with some fantastic ideas to engage with the local community and support good causes.
So, watch this space on how we will be activity involved in supporting and fund-raising for local causes and vulnerable groups in 2020.
