Stafford and Rural Homes (SARH) raises funds each year for a designated local charity.
The Charity of the Year for 2016 is A Child Of Mine. The organisation supports bereaved parents and was founded by local mum Gayle Routledge who lost her own son to a rare form of childhood cancer.
Several local charities were put forward by SARH staff. A Child Of Mine came first in a poll to find a charity to benefit from all fundraising efforts in 2016.
In 2015 we supported Eclipse Child Bereavement Service, raising £3,300 through a number of staff and customer events. Eclipse is an organisation that provides bereavement support to children who have lost a loved one.
“Eclipse does marvellous work helping young people through the most difficult times, and I’m delighted our staff and customers have managed to raise so much for a very worthy cause."
