Employees at Aldermore, the specialist bank, have chosen Sands as their Charity of the Year for 2017.
To select their Charity of the Year, Aldermore’s employees were asked to nominate causes and the winning charity was chosen through a Bank-wide vote. We were put forward by an employee from Aldermore’s Wilmslow office whose friends were helped by Sands following the sad death of their daughter.
Aldermore Group PLC is a specialist bank offering straightforward products to Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs), homeowners, landlords and individuals. Aldermore has no branch network but serves customers and intermediary partners online, by phone and face to face through its network of regional offices located around the UK.
Throughout 2017, the Aldermore Community Team (ACT) will hold a series of fundraising events for Sands. The Bank will match the amount raised at each event, up to a maximum of £250, via its “pound for pound” scheme.
Susy Gould-Obiora, Senior Trust and Corporate Fundraiser at Sands, said: “We are delighted that Aldermore has chosen Sands as its Charity of the Year. Without the vital support and incredible generosity of our supporters, fundraisers and volunteers, Sands would not be able to continue to support bereaved parents and their families. Our corporate partners play an important role in raising funds and awareness to enable us to deliver the wide range of services that we offer and we are very much looking forward to partnering with Aldermore over the coming year.”
Dana Cuffe, Chief Operating Officer at Aldermore, said: “We’ve been greatly impressed by the work that Sands does to support families impacted by stillbirth or neonatal death so we’re very pleased to name them Aldermore’s Charity of the Year for 2017. The cause is especially important to a member of our Wilmslow team who witnessed the vital support that the charity provides to families affected by the death of a baby. Our employees are really excited about supporting Sands’s activities through our fundraising initiatives this year.”
