Gripple - Charity of the year

We are doing a happy Friday dance here at our HQ as we have heard the very exciting news that Gripple Limited Sheffield Branch have chosen us for their charity of the year! Gripple actively encourage their employees to fundraise for charities of their choice and here is a pic of the lovely Laszlo and his colleagues showing off what looks to be a very scrumptious carrot cake that is part of his fundraising efforts to secure funding from his employers to only go and climb Mount Kilimanjaro for us! It warms our hearts every day to meet the fantastic people that we do and their selfless efforts to fundraise to help us provide Dream like experiences to more seriously ill and disabled children in South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw.

Thank you to Tufcot for your support in 2022! Your variety of fundraising activities has been amazing. From throwing eggs at the boss, to wrapping your colleagues up in tin foil, we’ve enjoyed seeing the activities throughout 2022. To balance the enjoyable pizza vans, fish & chips and ice cream sales, you also jumped out of an airplane. We honestly can’t thank you all enough. We wish you all the best for 2023 with your business growth and with your efforts to support Sheffield Children's Hospital NHS and Charity.
