2018 certainly was a busy year for Afiniti’s fundraisers – seeing us smash last year’s grand total – raising £2,000 for Honeypot.
From taking part in sponsored triathlons and bubble runs, to donating Easter eggs and Christmas cards, last year, our second supporting Honeypot, saw the whole team get involved in some way or other to help raise vital funds for this brilliant charity.
The Honeypot Children’s Charity offers both respite breaks and outreach support to young carers and vulnerable children. They are proud to be the only charity in the UK offering consistent support throughout childhood; from the age of 5 until a child’s 13th birthday.
Many of the Honeypot children have little place else to turn and through Honeypot’s long-term programme of respite breaks and outreach support, they have the chance to make friends, build life skills and most importantly create happy childhood memories.
One of the highlights of Afiniti’s fundraising year was our inaugural Easter Egg Donation. After Afiniti pledged to match each egg donated, 1-for-1, what started with a handful of people pledging to donate some eggs soon turned into an organisation-wide fundraiser!
Melina Alexandrou, Corporate Partnerships Manager, Honeypot, said, “A huge thanks to the team for raising £2k for Honeypot over the course of last year. This very generous amount of money will pay for all meals for 12 children over 6 first-time breaks”. Here’s to another successful year of partnership during 2019.”
Lorna Tarrant, Partner, Afiniti, commented, “2018 was our second year supporting Honeypot. As a family-oriented organisation we feel a real kinship with the values and ethos of the charity. We match all Afiniti people’s personal fundraising amounts like-for-like, and absolutely love the fact we can see and hear how our contributions are helping to make a real difference to the lives of the Honeypot children and their families.”
