Crafters Companion have named the Bradley Lowery Foundation as their charity of the year!
Our staff have organised a number of events to support the foundation throughout the year, including a Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge, a summer fundraiser and a special Christmas campaign. The team will also set up in-store donations at Crafter’s Companion’s three UK stores and will participate in a number of the charity’s fundraising activities.
Our company’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) team voted for the Bradley Lowery Foundation after Sara was unveiled as the charity’s newest patron last year.
Since it was founded, the Bradley Lowery Foundation has raised more than £3million for dozens of poorly children, established a dedicated support line for the families of children with cancer, donated over £200K to researching childhood cancers and campaigned for new drugs to be introduced in the UK.
Sara said, “I’m really proud that the team has decided to name the Bradley Lowery Foundation as Crafter’s Companion’s charity of the year. It’s a local charity that does fantastic work on a national scale and their work has enabled poorly children to receive much-needed therapy, equipment and life-changing treatment.
“Our CSR team were fantastic in their support of national and local causes last year. The group raised more than £4000 for Children in Need and £5000 for Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity, so I’m extremely excited to see how they can help Gemma and the team.”
Gemma Lowery, founder of the Bradley Lowery Foundation and Bradley’s mum, said, “We were delighted to get Sara’s support as our patron last year and we’re even happier now we have the support of her whole team at Crafter’s Companion.
“The company’s fundraising will help us to continue our work supporting poorly children and their families across the UK.”
We’re so excited to start working with the Bradley Lowery Foundation and fundraising as much as we can for them, so keep your eyes peeled for future announcements!
