We are extremely happy to announce that Bell Cornwall Recruitment have chosen the Buddy Bag Foundation as their charity of choice for the next 12 months.
At BCR, we care deeply about supporting the local community through our efforts with sports clubs and charities. This thought process is what led us to the Buddy Bag Foundation, the Derbyshire based charity hit the nail on the head with their admirable, ambitious mission statement and their commitment to their cause.
Buddy Bag Foundation provides Children who arrive in emergency care with essential items and care packages that they would otherwise have to live without. Often these Children leave home in the middle of the night without a single possession from their lives. As you can imagine, this would have a harrowing effect on a Child even without the traumatic situation they may have left behind.
A Buddy Bag contains essential items including toiletries, pajamas, socks, underwear as well as additional comfort items including a book, a photo frame and a teddy bear. The Buddy Bags are made with all ages in mind from 0-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9-12 and 13-16 years old. Each bag costs £25 and the money used supports 100% of the project, something which the Founder Karen Williams is incredibly proud to impart.
Overwhelmed by their mission statement, Bell Cornwall Recruitment selected BBF to support in the months ahead. Karen Williams was very happy to have us on board ‘”I am delighted that Bell Cornwall has chosen us as their Charity of the Year. We are looking forward to making a difference to children in emergency care by supplying Buddy Bags into the local community of Birmingham.”
Our Team will be getting involved in their ‘Buddy Bag Brigade’ as well as sponsoring them on the many events we’ve got planned in the future. Our team had better get training – our future looks very active thanks to Jeremy’s last few escapades! Read more about the Buddy Bag Foundation here: http://www.buddybagfoundation.co.uk/
