Every year Curo colleagues nominate and vote for a local charity they would like to support. This year colleagues have chosen to support Time is Precious, a local South West charity whose aim is to help create a more comfortable and relaxed atmosphere for children and their families in hospital or at home.
The charity works alongside specialists to purchase equipment and refurbish areas to support not just those children who, because of illness or disability, find themselves in hospital for treatment but also their families who want to be with them because time is just that precious.
Charity founder Nicky Halford from Time is Precious, said: “Time Is Precious are absolutely thrilled and honoured to be the chosen charity for Curo. We are totally voluntary run and therefore every penny goes towards improving the lives of seriously ill and disabled children, in hospital and at home. We look forward to meeting you all and working with you. Together we can make a real difference.”
Curo Communications & Brand Manager Rachael Allen said: “We’re very excited to be supporting Time is Precious through our fundraising this year. Colleagues are busy planning lots of fundraising activities including bakes sales, taking part in the Half Iron Man, writing competitions, raffles, quizzes and plenty of dress-downs and dress-up days! Curo’s fabulous young-at-heart residents who attend our Livewell Hubs have also pledged to support Time is Precious through regular coffee mornings and raffles.”
