Action for Children is our new charity of the year

Posted: 18th March, 2020

With the beginning of the new financial year getting closer, we’ve chosen our new charity of the year for 2020-21. For the next 12 months, we’ll be actively fundraising for Action for Children.

Should you not already be familiar with the charity, Action for Children helps children and young people with practical and emotional care and support by delivering wellbeing courses and skills programmes, campaigning for change, publishing vital research, providing fostering and adoption services, and more.

Action for Children’s aim is to ensure children’s voices are heard, bring lasting improvements to children’s lives, and empower children to enjoy a safe and happy childhood. Money raised by Quill will enable the charity to continue its vital services provision.

Julian Bryan, our managing director, comments: “Selecting our main charity is tricky because there are so many worthy causes who all do amazing work for those in need. Action for Children got our vote because of the incredible support they offer to the youngest and most vulnerable in our society.

“At Quill, our charity committee is absolutely committed to backing Action for Children as best we can, hopefully building upon the fundraising successes of previous years and planning an exciting series of charitable fun activities.

“As always, we welcome donations and fundraising suggestions from anyone wishing to get behind us in the months ahead. Please get in touch by calling 0161 236 2910 or emailing charitycommittee@quill.co.uk.”
