Quick Move Now continues to support key charities
Quick Move Now is delighted to be able to continue to support its key charity partners, despite a challenging year.
The company has worked closely with three key charities for the last three years.
About Quick Move Now’s key charities
Prospect Hospice is Quick Move Now’s local hospice, providing end-of-life care and support to Swindon and surrounding villages. Last year Prospect Hospice supported more than 7,000 patients and family members. The hospice receives less than 30 percent of its running costs from central sources and needs to raise significant funds each year to keep providing their much-needed services.
The hospice has been deeply impacted by Covid-19. The closing of shops and cancellation of their biggest fundraising events during lockdown created a £2million-plus funding shortfall.
Over the last three years Quick Move Now has (with match funding) donated more than £19,000 to Prospect Hospice.
Brimble Hill School
Another organisation close to our hearts is Brimble Hill School. You might have seen that our client account manager, Jerome, took on two daring challenges this year to raise funds for the school.
Brimble Hill School is a primary special school for children with severe or profound and multiple learning difficulties.
We’re delighted to have been able to donate more than £8,000 to the school. This year’s donation will be used to purchase specialist eye gaze aids that will enable children with more complex needs to be able to make choices and communicate with those around them more easily.
Naomi House & Jacksplace
Naomi House & Jacksplace are hospices that support life-limited and life threatened children and young adults. They look after families across Wiltshire, Hampshire, Berkshire, Dorset and the Isle of Wight, and do a brilliant job supporting the child of one of our staff members.
Quick Move Now has donated £7,500 to Naomi House & Jacksplace.
Danny Luke, Quick Move Now’s managing director, said:
It’s been a challenging year for so many people. Charities, in particular, have struggled as they’ve been unable to carry out many of their usual fundraising activities. As a result, we felt it was really important that we continued to support our three key charities this year.
In addition to donations to our key charities, we have also continued to support a number of environmental organisations. This includes the purchase of 30 acres of land for protection through the World Land Trust and support of wildlife trusts in Wiltshire, Cornwall and Wales.
We have also, this year, been re-certified as a carbon neutral company.
We are only a relatively small team, but we are always keen to ensure our impact on the world around us is a positive one; both in terms of looking after people and the planet.
