Kingfisher Cares is a programme of charitable fundraising that supports local charities with promotional activities to help reach our immediate community and raise awareness. In 2018 as part of our Kingfisher Cares initiative, with involvement from our partners, we helped local charities to raise over £32,000. Our aim is to smash the record and beat this figure!
Earlier this year we asked our local community to nominate a local charity to become a Kingfisher Cares partner. We received a fantastic response and since then, we shortlisted a number of charities. We then asked our community to cast their votes and the 3 charities that received the highest number of votes were;
- Charlotte & Craig's Saving Hearts Foundation - assists with the financing, supply, and training of Defibrillators, and to raise awareness of Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome (SADS)
- Where Next Association - provides work experience and training for people with learning disabilities or those disadvantaged in some way
- Inspire Community CIC - committed to working with the Redditch community to provide services to support mental health and well-being
We'd like to thank everyone for taking the time to cast their votes and we very much look forward to working with these 3 brilliant local charities across the coming months!
