Add a splash of colour this Christmas to support local Charity

Ormiston Families, the East of England’s leading family charity, is calling on local businesses to support its new ‘Add a splash of colour this Christmas’ fundraising campaign between now and January.

The new campaign, featuring mascot Penelope Penguin, offers businesses a festive fundraising resources pack including 12 fundraising ideas, a festive greetings sign-up sheet, a poster and how to guide. There is also a sweepstake where companies and their staff can guess the colour of Penelope’s hat, scarf and mitts.

Whether you choose to fundraise now, during UK Charity Week or on the final run up to Christmas, adding a splash of colour this Christmas will raise valuable funds to help Ormiston Families support children, young people and families facing a difficult time over the festive season.

CEO of Ormiston Families, Allan Myatt, says: “I am thrilled to launch a new festive fundraising campaign at a time when our vision has been revitalised. Ormiston Families aims to support families to build resilience and make choices to improve the life chances of their children.

Every pound raised will contribute towards the charity’s wide ranging support for children, young people and families in the East of England. The money raised could help pay for a children’s Christmas party whilst visiting a parent in prison. It could help pay for counselling sessions for children experiencing mental health difficulties or pay for a year’s worth of travel expenses to take a group of children out for the day.

Broadway Colours, Ashton’s Legal and Colour Marketing Services are kindly sponsoring the campaign.

Adding a splash of colour at Christmas is fun, easy and something work colleagues can get involved in to make a difference. To find out more and sign up to get your free fundraising pack, visit www.ormiston.org/events/addasplashofcolour
