Ormiston Families seeks local businesses to ‘Add a splash of colour this Christmas’ to support local families facing a difficult time

The new ‘Add a splash of colour this Christmas’ 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.


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.

 

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 us support children, young people and families facing a difficult time over the festive season. You could host a festive bake off, auction or dress up with a splash of colour, so why not get your fundraising pack today and have some fun in the workplace?”

 

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

 

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.

 

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
