Corporate partnerships

 

We have been proudly partnered with a number of national charities over the years and we are currently supporting two causes as our corporate charity partners – Together for Short Lives in the UK and Barretstown in Ireland - as well as supporting the British Heart Foundation through donations of furniture.

 

Our corporate charity partners

 

Together for Short Lives

Together for Short Lives is here to make sure the 99,000 seriously ill children and their families up and down the UK can make the most of every moment they have together – whether that’s for years, months or only hours. Many of these children have complex conditions and need specialist care 24-hours a day, seven days a week. Together for Short Lives stands alongside families, supporting them to make sure they get the vital care and help that they need, as well as raising funds for the children’s hospices who provide lifeline care and support.

Barretstown

Barretstown, based in County Kildare in Ireland, offers free, specially designed camps and programmes for children and their families living with a serious illness, supported behind the scenes by 24-hour on-site medical and nursing care. Their aim is to rebuild the lives of children affected by serious illness through a life-changing Therapeutic Recreation programme in a safe, fun and supportive environment. They believe that every child with a serious illness should enjoy their childhood.

British Heart Foundation

We began working with the British Heart Foundation in 2016, donating furniture and electrical equipment as we refurbish accommodation. These items would otherwise be disposed of, and we’re thrilled that we can help give them a new life while also helping to raise funds for research into heart and circulatory diseases. To date, our furniture donations have raised more than £550,000 and more than 440 tonnes of furniture have been reused, rather than being sent to landfill.

 

Annual charity partnerships

Each year, we also select a number of smaller charities to work with. These charities share our ethos of keeping families together and we donate a number of breaks for them to allocate to families in need of some special time away together. We are proud that we have been partnered with some of these charities for more than a decade, helping dozens of families make precious memories together. Our charity partners for 2021/22 are:
