We are delighted to have named Children’s Heart Surgery Fund (CHSF) as our charity partner of the year for 2021, pledging to raise £9,000 to refurbish two overnight rooms as part of its upcoming undertaking: The Parent Rooms Project.
Parent Rooms Project aims to refurbish the accommodation available to parents within the Brotherton Wing at Leeds Children’s Hospital — providing a comfortable bed and a modern, bright, and cheerful environment during an extremely difficult period. Through this provision and many others, CHSF looks to reduce the repercussions of health inequality for families with children affected by congenital heart disease.
Against a backdrop of unprecedented economic and emotional hardship, our corporate social responsibility efforts are more critical than ever. We have experienced rapid growth over the last year despite the unforeseen challenges of 2020. As we continue to work towards our overall vision, it’s only fitting we give back to our community and support those in need.
We were made aware of the charity’s efforts through a close contact, and as a fellow Yorkshire-based organisation that is built on the foundations of resilience and integrity, we are confident we will continue to drive significant impact, resulting in positive outcomes.
Sharon Milner, CHSF CEO, commented:
“Support from a business such as Solutionize Global makes a huge difference. Having met the company’s staff, we understand their drivers and feel our values are very much aligned.”
“Their commitment to our cause shines through and we believe we will have a fantastic partnership. And as a regional business, the team will naturally understand the diverse range of our people and communities.”
Rachel McElroy, Chief Communication and Engagement Officer at Solutionize Global, added:
“As a business born in Yorkshire, and built from scratch, we are driven by a passion to give back to our community. We want to make a positive difference to others – this is not only something that we hold dear but is more important now than ever before.”
“Our team is excited and ready to rise to the challenge of supporting CHSF as much as we can throughout 2021.”
We are eager to set and announce a series of fundraising activities to meet our goal, nominating ‘fundraising ambassadors’ who will lead the team to victory with innovative and creative ways to raise as much money as we can. In line with our commitment to supporting the charity we recently took part in Wear Red Day on Friday 5th February, generating £126 so far in staff donations.
