Local children with disabilities and their families receive support through Fletchers’ CSR Fund
By Reece Hobson-Adams, CSR Manager
In the latest round of community funding, local charity The Rainbow Hub was one of fantastic causes to be successful.
The CSR Fund is just one part of Fletchers’ CSR strategy that is supporting local people and local communities in keeping well. The fund allows Fletcher’s colleagues to apply for funding for charities and groups who are tackling causes important to colleagues and Fletchers.
The Rainbow Hub is a charity in Lancashire that exists to improve the lives of children and young people from across the Northwest of England with disabilities and their families. All families accessing Rainbow Hub have a child with a physical disability.
The varying levels of disability they work with are caused by neurological conditions or brain injury (caused before, during or after birth). Their specialist educational and therapeutic approaches to learning, help children with significant additional challenges to overcome some of their difficulties and live more active and independent lives!
Since 2001, the charity has supported as many as 85 families per week. They have been able to help children reach their full potential and gain more independence, whilst also offering their parents the support they require and deserve.
Katherine from The Rainbow Hub also said: “The £300 donation that we have received from Fletchers CSR Fund has been very gratefully received! Here at Rainbow Hub, we receive no Government funding for our charitable services which is why donations like these really do help us to make a difference and positively impact the lives of the children and young people who attend our services (and their families!)”
She continued by saying: “It is wonderful to see that Fletchers take their corporate social responsibility so seriously. The Fletchers’ CSR Fund will certainly positively impact our organisation and we are truly grateful for this support!”
Reflecting on the fund’s donation to The Rainbow Hub, Fletchers’ CEO Peter Haden stated: “This is why the CSR Fund is there, to support causes important to our team members. The fund is also there to support great causes like The Rainbow Hub, and it is great to see that the funding we have provided will allow the charity to continue its brilliant work in support these young children and their families”
