We are delighted to report that we have been instrumental in raising over £20,000 for the children’s charity, When You Wish Upon a Star, which supports children with life-threatening illnesses.
Since 1990, When You Wish Upon a Star has helped over 17,000 sick children fulfill their dreams, from swimming with dolphins to meeting Mickey Mouse in Disneyland, Florida. The charity is heavily reliant on donations from the general public and businesses from the local area. The donation will go a long way in supporting their work.
On March 1, many of you joined us at a fund-raising sports dinner for the charity. This event was an opportunity for businesses of all sizes in the North West to engage with the local community and make an important contribution to an admirable cause. We are delighted that we managed to raise in excess of £20,000, which is a transformative amount for a truly inspiring charity.
This effort by the team in Manchester comes on the heels of the firm’s recent launch of the Duff & Phelps Charitable Foundation, an employee-directed non-profit organization committed to promoting volunteerism and assisting charitable organizations in achieving their goals.
