Following the official launch of the Care 4 Children Social Responsibility project (https://bit.ly/2Rxw3WJIt) we are delighted to announce our latest charitable efforts.

Care 4 Children Chairman, Riz Khan, led the Manchester campaign alongside a community-based committee who all had one thing in common – to help those in need and avert a humanitarian crisis and raise funds for much-needed Dam’s being built in Pakistan.  The target was to raise £1million but check out this article to see what the team actually achieved – https://bit.ly/2TBszEr

Our social responsibility strategy has a local, national and international focus and is led by a committee of Care 4 Children staff and children in our care, all keen to make a difference.  We would really like to hear about causes that are close to your heart and how we can help, or ideas for future social responsibility projects.

As well as our committee-led approach, each employee is encouraged to ‘give back’ to their local community which is supported with protected time being given to allow this work to take place.  Ventures to date include volunteering, working on ways to reduce our carbon footprint, fundraising and engagement with local charities.

Alex Newton, Lead Teacher at C4C’s Hope House is supporting Children With Cancer UK and has set himself a charitable challenge of a lifetime: “My story is short and sweet…. I am lucky enough to be fit, healthy and have an amazing family and friends to support me. So why not…. I wanted a challenge, to give something back and to raise money for a truly amazing charity. I thought running a marathon would be an excellent way to do this.”

“Being a teacher I hope to encourage other young people to take on their own life challenge whatever that may be. Running this marathon is not going to be a breeze, it will be my first, so I hope this will inspire others too.”

“250 children in the UK, aged 0-14 years lose their lives to cancer every year, your donation supports research, treat these children and support their families through a time no parent should have to go through” explains Alex.
