This year, we are proud to be supporting the Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service, which provides essential support to families of children with life-limiting and life threatening conditions across Berkshire and in the surrounding communities.
John and Fiona Devine from Windsor set up the charity in memory of their extraordinary little boy who sadly passed away at the age of 8 in 2006 from a rare brain tumour. Their personal experience, and subsequent extensive research, led them to realise that there was a vital need for a local children’s hospice service.
We will be participating in several activities and events throughout the year to raise funds and awareness for this special cause, and will work towards a target total over the year. Make sure you follow our social channels for regular updates!
We are also pleased to announce a partnership with Starting Point, who provide support and mentoring for disadvantaged young people aged 16-25, who are not in education, employment or training, to give them a brighter future. We will be working with them on a mentorship programme, workplace visits and skill sharing.
To further make an impact in the local community, we are holding monthly food collections in the office for ReadiFood, who provide emergency food parcels to families and individuals in severe need across the greater Reading area.
