Team Housing Solutions joins Santa Dash
We are proud to be Housing Solutions’ Charity of the Year.
After winning the affordable housing provider’s staff vote by more than 50%, Thames Hospice was selected as their charity partner until April 2018. As a first show of support, Housing Solutions will enter a team of 20 in our annual Santa Dash.
Jennifer Platt, Housing Solutions Community Engagement Manager, said: “We’re very much looking forward to working with Thames Hospice and giving them our support. When planning the calendar of events, we saw that Thames Hospice was putting on a Santa Dash and thought it was a great team-building opportunity for staff to get together and have fun. Anybody can get involved, from the super competitive runners to those who just want to walk and raise some money!
“With Thames Hospice organising it all, it was an easy way to fundraise with a number of staff already expressing interest and the rest of the staff donating towards our efforts. We’re really looking forward to the event and hoping to get some great photos of all us dressed up with our Santa outfits too… although running with a beard will be interesting!”
The Maidenhead-based organisation will continue to support Thames Hospice with various fundraisers and volunteer projects, as well as offering staff members the option to use their three Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) hours to help us.
Helen Saich, Thames Hospice Trusts & Corporate Stewardship Fundraiser, said: “We’re delighted to have been selected as Housing Solutions’ Charity of the Year. Corporate support is invaluable to us; increasing our awareness and generating the income we need to keep the Hospice running. We can’t wait to welcome Housing Solutions’ wonderful team to our Santa Dash and look forward to all their exciting fundraising plans ahead.”
The much-loved Thames Hospice Santa Dash takes place in Swinley Forest, Bracknell, on November 27th at 10am.
