Throughout 2019 E G Carter & Co Ltd supported the James Hopkins Trust, Herefordshire MIND and Crohn’s and Colitis as their charities of the year.
In January 2020 we were delighted to present a £19,191.18 cheque to Rose Hedges, representative of Herefordshire MIND and Sarah James from The James Hopkins Trust. This money was raised by the employees of E G Carter & Co Ltd after hosting a range of events including supporting the annual Gloucester 10k Race, quiz nights, raffles, 300-mile bike ride in 24 hours and much more.
The money that has been raised will be split three ways, a third towards James Hopkins Trust, Crohn’s and Colitis and Herefordshire MIND.
Gillian Reid, Corporate Partnerships Officer from Crohn’s and Colitis said, “Crohn’s & Colitis UK were delighted to be chosen by E G Carter & Co Ltd in 2019 as a charity of the year partner. Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis are lifelong chronic diseases with no known cure. Partnerships like the one we have with E G Carter & Co Ltd are vital to our work, not only for raising funds, but to raise awareness of the impact of these conditions. We would like to say a huge thank you, and send our appreciation, to everyone at E G Carter for their fantastic support and hard work over 2019.”
The James Hopkins Trust were equally as pleased with the fundraising and said that the money would pay for every child they care for to receive two daytime respite sessions. The Trust looks after 108 families across Gloucestershire and provide them with therapy, multi-sensory therapy, overnight respite, interactive with their children and families and much more. To ensure each child receives two daytime respite sessions is overwhelming.
Kimberley Clay, PR Coordinator at E G Carter & Co Ltd said “To have raised this amount of money after a year of fundraising is incredible, we couldn’t have done it without our employee’s passion and determination. To see what the money will go toward has made all of the hard work worth it.”
Throughout 2020 E G Carter & Co Ltd will be supporting British Heart Foundation, James Hopkins Trust and Sue Ryder
