Grant UK has announced that Julia’s House is its chosen charity for 2017. A variety of fundraising activities will be organised by the Devizes-based company throughout the year to help support the work of this local charity, which supports seriously ill children in Wiltshire and Dorset who do not have access to the level of care and support that they need. This year Julia’s House will also be opening a new hospice in Devizes, the first of its kind in the county.
Grant UK’s announcement follows a range of fundraising activities in December 2016 for the charity. Grant UK staff helped raise £500 with an indulgent hot chocolate event, a festive jumper day and Chilli Tuesday, when a delicious hot lunch was laid on, all in return for donations. The major fundraising activity for the month was a special raffle with Kindle Fires, iPod shuffles, luxury chocolates and food hampers on offer as prizes.
“Everyone at Grant UK is delighted to be supporting Julia’s House in 2017, which is going to make such a difference for seriously ill children and their families in and around Devizes,” said Anna Wakefield, marketing and corporate communications manager for Grant UK.
