Kenwood supports children’s charity Over The Wall
Staff at Kenwood are aiming to raise £10,000 for children’s charity Over The Wall, the company’s Charity of the Year for 2019.
The initiative is being led by Kenwood’s ‘Giving Something Back’ team to help fund free residential camps for children with serious illness by participating in a collection of challenges and activities.
The small appliance brand will also send a team of staff members to the charity’s South Health Challenge camp in July to unload and unpack resources, medical supplies and equipment and to create a safe camp environment.
“We look forward to forming a prosperous, fun filled partnership involving Over The Wall and our own employees, to ensure as many children as possible can enjoy the benefits brought by this amazing charity,” said Alan Cummings, Giving Something Back team sponsor at Kenwood.
Over The Wall CEO Kevin Mathieson said Kenwood’s support will have an “enormous” impact on the charity and will increase the number of children with serious health challenges attending its camps.
He added: “2019 marks our 20th Anniversary year and therefore it is our aim to provide more camp experiences to children with serious illness than ever before. Kenwood will now play a big part in doing this, allowing us to bring mischief and magic to over 1,000 children and families affected by childhood illness.”
Kenwood will host a tea party to celebrate the charity’s 20th anniversary at the end of camp season, the proceeds of which will go towards the funding of camps.
