Order fulfilment and ecommerce logistics specialist, fulfilmentcrowd, has announced its first charity partner, appointing local charity, Derian House Children’s Hospice.
The 12-month partnership will see Chorley-headquartered fulfilmentcrowd raise vital funds for the hospice that will go towards helping Derian House provide respite and end of life care to more than 300 children and young people across the North West.
When searching for its first good cause partner, it was important to the fulfilmentcrowd team to appoint a local charity, with Lee Thompson, sales & marketing director at fulfilmentcrowd, explaining: “As a large employer in Chorley, we take our responsibilities to the local community very seriously. Across the business, we have a wealth of talent and creative energy that we felt could be harnessed to support the voluntary sector. Derian House is not only a very worthy cause, but they also share our ethos of innovation and never-ending improvement to deliver on their objectives. Everyone at fulfilmentcrowd will be working hard through 2019 to raise funds and increase awareness of their work.”
fulfilmentcrowd has already kicked off its fundraising efforts with the launch of the £50 Corporate Challenge. Between now and June 8th, its employees have the task of turning £50 into as much money as possible, through various events including quizzes, fun runs, FIFA tournaments and a men’s charity leg wax.
fulfilmentcrowd’s clients will also be backing the company’s charitable causes, with many donating various products to be auctioned off during an upcoming charity event.
Lee continues: “Charities like Derian House rely on partnerships like ours and I know that our support, and that of our customers, will really make a difference to the lives of children and young people in the region. The team is raring to go with various fundraising activities already well underway.”
Elaine, corporate and sponsorship fundraiser for Derian House, adds: “We’re absolutely delighted to be working with fulfilmentcrowd and proud to have been chosen as their charity partner. The help they are giving us is invaluable and will directly benefit the children and families from all over the North West that so urgently need our care and support.”
Client and active wear brand, Nasty Lifestyle, is also donating 938 units of stock to HRH Prince of Wales’ charity, In Kind Direct, with fulfilmentcrowd supporting this initiative by sharing the fulfilment costs with the clothing retailer. In Kind Direct distributes consumer goods donated by companies to charities working in the UK and overseas.
