Charity and Fundraising
icelolly.com are a generous bunch, and we believe that we have a responsibility as a business to support charities and organisations that are doing some good in the world! We’ve made contributions to many charities over the years, but in 2015 we decided for the first time to contribute all our fundraising efforts to one cause, chosen by the company as a whole.
This year our chosen charity is the Children’s Heart Surgery Fund, a Yorkshire-based organisation that supports the Yorkshire heart unit Leeds General Infirmary. The Children’s Heart Surgery Fund does a great job helping young people born with congenital heart defects, providing support to the children and their families as well as funding vital equipment, research projects and staff training.
As a Leeds-based company, icelolly.com were keen to support a local charity who we could build a real relationship with, and the Children’s Heart Surgery Fund definitely fit the bill! We love to receive regular updates on the charity’s latest achievements, and some of our staff have been lucky enough to visit the ward at Leeds General Infirmary to see first-hand how our donations are making a difference.
We have regular fundraising events at icelolly.com HQ, and over the past year all our staff have got involved in bake sales, cocktail afternoons, quizzes and team games to raise money for the Children’s Heart Surgery Fund. Our efforts don’t end there – we also have a brave band of daredevils fundraising for a group skydive in 2016.
Other Charities We’ve Worked With
icelolly.com are regularly approached by charities, and like to help out wherever we can! We participate every year in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning for Macmillan Cancer Support, and on occasion donate holiday discount vouchers to charity event raffles and prize draws.
