We are pleased to announce that Simply Business have chosen Whizz-Kidz as their charity partner.
The long-term partnership will focus on building a brighter future for young disabled people. Working together, we aim to raise £150,000 in the first three years, enough to provide vital mobility equipment for all the young disabled people on our current waiting list in the communities near Simply Business. This support will help enable Whizz-Kidz to transform the lives of more disabled children throughout 2016 and beyond.
Simply Business are currently the UK’s largest business insurance provider and were awarded first place in The Sunday Times’ 100 Best Small Companies to Work For list (mid-sized category) in 2015.
To launch the partnership Simply Business have chosen to give a donation which will provide vital mobility equipment for young disabled people on our waiting list. In addition employees in both offices turned their desks and themselves green to celebrate the partnership and raise vital funds for Whizz-Kidz!
We are delighted that Simply Business have chosen to partner with us and we look forward to working with everyone closely over the coming years! Ruth Owen OBE, Whizz-Kidz CEO, said ‘My huge thanks to the staff of Simply Business for their fantastic support for Whizz-Kidz. It’s through the help of our tireless fundraisers and volunteers that we have been able to transform the lives of over 20,000 disabled children to date.
‘The money Simply Business employees are raising will help us reach more disabled children who are still waiting for their childhood to start.’
