Ansvar Community Campaign 2023
We launched our fourth Community Campaign; giving money back to charities across the UK.
We had £25,000 to give away – the first prize was £15,000 and the two runners up both received £5,000 each. We received over 450 entries and staff were asked to vote for their favourite three charities.
The Honeypot Children’s Charity
Honeypot’s wrap-around service aims to alleviate social isolation, support young carers’ emotional wellbeing, and help them build the confidence and skills they need to succeed in education.
Creating Memories provides truly bespoke wishes for children with life limiting and/or terminal illnesses, and their families.
Children’s Hospital Pyjamas
Children’s Hospital Pyjamas distribute over 20,000 pairs of pyjamas each year to bring comfort to children in hospital.
Our previous winners
Yes Futures supports disadvantaged young people in London and the South East by helping them take part in projects which build their communication and teamwork skills. They used their £15,000 to fund Play Your Part day trips, where young people engage in vocational activities to support their local community, such as building hedgehog houses, designing outdoor classrooms, pruning shrubbery and looking after farm animals.
A huge part of their programme is about instilling confidence. The charity was founded in 2012 by Sarah Sewell, an experienced teacher who noticed that a lack of confidence was often holding students back from fulfilling their potential and the prize money has helped them support over 500 children.
Little Lifts provide boxes of ‘goodies’ for those going through chemotherapy. Items such as hand cream, sweets, small bottles of water etc. Small things that can make someone’s chemo experience just a little more bearable and put a smile on someone’s face. We felt this was such a lovely idea and one which will also positively benefit many people.
Oakleaf are a mental health charity who work with people with all kinds of mental health issues. The charity launched its Kickstart programme in 2021 after seeing the highest level of low mood and suicidal thoughts ever in its clients during the covid lockdowns, as well as a decline in their physical health. The 12-week Kickstart programme was so successful in boosting both physical and mental health, the charity decided to seek funding to run further courses, year on year.
