Kind hearted colleagues from Tulip Ltd have raised a staggering £80,000 for their chosen charity Make –A-Wish UK, the organisation who make dreams come true for young people fighting life-threatening conditions.
And as the fundraising partnership comes to an end Tulip’s Group HR Director, Kirsty Wilkins, reflects on the past 24 months; “We are delighted to have been able to support Make-A-Wish ® UK over the past two years and know that the £80,000 we have raised has gone towards helping them grant many wishes to young people across the country.
“I’m incredibly proud of my colleagues at Tulip who have pulled out all the stops to help raise the much needed funds by organising a wide range of fund raising activities, from golf days, car and bike shows in factory car parks to parachute jumps, there isn’t much they haven’t done.”
The Make-A-Wish Foundation helps make hundreds of dreams come true for deserving children and their families and this year the organisation, founded in 1986, celebrated the granting of its 10,000th wish.
Commenting on Tulip’s fundraising, Jason Suckley, CEO of Make-A-Wish UK, added; “Thank you to Tulip for supporting Make-A-Wish UK over the last two years. The fantastic total of £80,000 raised by staff will help grant magical wishes to enrich the lives of some of the most deserving children and young people across the UK. We want to grant the wishes of over 1,000 seriously ill children this year and funds raised will help us achieve this.”
