As always with the Genuine Solutions Group, we put charity and community support at the heart of what our companies do. One of our core values for the group is Responsible – we believe that we cannot be successful if we do not care about the environment and the communities around us. Another core value is Supportive and so this leads us to think of others who are not as fortunate ourselves.
Our charities for 2018 – 2020 are an exciting mix of partners and a perfect blend of major global health issues and some local heroes. We are also planning a major international environmental project which we hope to launch in 2019. But for our partners this year, we have introduced two environmental projects – demonstrating our commitment to lead the world in championing sustainable and repurposed technology.
We welcome all of these amazing organisations into the Genuine Solutions family. They’ve provided a fresh injection of fundraising inspiration driving us all on to do so much more.
Dementia is now the leading cause of death in the UK, with more than 850,000 people living with the condition rising to an estimated 1 million by 2025. The effect on the person with dementia and on their relatives, friends and colleagues can be devastating and there is often little help or advice available. Many carers find it a grinding, stressful, twenty-four-hour role trying to keep loved ones safe and comfortable. Your help is more important than ever.
Momentum Children’s Charity
Christmas time can be especially tough for families who have a child with cancer or life-challenging condition. Many children spend the entire festive season in hospital. Momentum Children’s Charity offers a unique support programme at home and in hospital, which includes therapy services, counselling, holidays, experiences and children’s ward refurbishments.
British Heart Foundation
The British Heart Foundation raise money to fund research into heart and circulatory diseases and their risk factors. We have been funding research to keep hearts beating and blood flowing for over 50 years. In that time, the annual number of deaths from heart and circulatory diseases in the UK has fallen by more than half. But 1 in 4 people in the UK still die from heart and circulatory diseases. We want to change that for good. But we need your help.
Wildlife Aid Foundation
The Wildlife Aid Foundation is dedicated to the rescue, care and rehabilitation of sick, injured and orphaned wild animals. Established in 1980, the charity’s veterinary wildlife hospital in Leatherhead, Surrey deals with more than 20,000 wildlife emergencies every year. Our dedicated aim is to return every patient to the wild once they have recovered. The Foundation’s work was the focus of the popular TV series Wildlife SOS on Discovery Channel’s ‘Animal Planet‘ and has now moved onto the worldwide platform of YouTube.
We are drowning in plastic, putting wildlife at risk and losing valuable green space. Thames21 finds solutions to these problems by connecting people with waterways and putting healthy rivers back at the heart of everyday life. We restore rivers, educate the community and campaign for positive change. We monitor water quality, restore habitats and empower people through outdoor learning sessions and river stewardship. Help us preserve our waterways and wildlife for future generations.
