Like many charities, Care for the Family relies on the generosity of others to be able to provide our family building services. Most of this support comes from individuals, but we are also grateful for the support we receive from a number of businesses and organisations who have chosen to partner with us. Whether it’s a corporate volunteering scheme, staff team-building challenge which incorporates fundraising, or you are looking to support a charity which works in your local area, we would love to talk to you about how we could work together. Some of the organisations we enjoy the support of, are: AFD Software Based on the Isle of Man, AFD Software has been sponsoring the work we do on the Island since 1997. This support has allowed Care for the Family to employ a dedicated manager and run events, training courses and provide support to families on the island. “The Christian ideals of family life have taken a huge knock over recent years – the biblical ideals have been eroded by social change and legislation – but they are no less valid for all that. People are hurting, families are broken, and society is paying the enormous price! We have supported Care for the Family for many years – and will continue to do so. Never has its work been so vitally important.” David and Alison Dorricott (Directors, AFD Software Ltd) Cheltenham College
Cheltenham College decided to make Care for the Family their charity of the year for 2012-13.
The year was kicked off by a key note speech from Katharine Hill, Care for the Family’s UK Director, at the college chapel in September.
Students have set up a Just Giving webpage and organised a series of fundraising activities throughout the year. Many have decided to use Care for the Family’s Host a Roast idea, inviting parents and teachers to share a roast together, and then donating money to the charity.
If you are looking for a ‘Charity of the Year’, we would love to hear from you.
