Team story

[p]George at ASDA will be holding a charity fundraising day on Friday 21st September. All colleagues have been invited to partake in numerous fundraising challenges, including scaling Snowdon. All proceeds raised will be donated to Children in Need and the Make A Wish Foundation, two charities that are close to our colleagues hearts.[/p][p]Llanberis Path Walk, Snowdon[/p][p]We estimate that over 150 colleagues will be tackling Snowdon, with walkers possibly experiencing all four seasons in one day. Snowdon is a physical and mental challenge with our colleagues determined to succeed knowing that every step taken is a step to raise valuable funds to support both Children In Need and Make A Wish Foundation UK.[/p][p][br][/p][p][b][u]Find out more about the two charities below:[/u][/b][/p][p]BBC Children in Need is the BBC's UK corporate charity. Thanks to the support of the public, Children in Need are able to make a real difference to the lives of children all across the UK. [/p][p][u]Children in Need's Vision[/u][/p][p]That every child in the UK has a childhood which is:[/p][p]Safe[/p][p]Happy and Secure[/p][p]Allows them the chance to reach their potential[/p][p][u]What CIN do:[/u][/p][p]BBC Children in Need provide grants to projects in the UK which focus on children and young people who are disadvantaged. We are local to people in all corners of the UK and support small and large organisations which empower children and extend their life choices.[/p][p]Children in Need currently support 2,789 projects all across the UK. The projects we fund help children facing a range of disadvantages for example poverty and deprivation; children who have been the victims of abuse or neglect or disabled young people.[/p][p][br][/p][p][b][u]Make A Wish Foundation UK:[/u][/b][/p][p][b]Together, we create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.[/b][/p][p]Whether it’s starring in their own films, walking with dinosaurs, going on an amazing holiday, meeting a celebrity hero, or having a life-changing bedroom makeover; our wishes are varied, personal and, most importantly, magical.[/p][p]We go above and beyond to grant very special wishes to very special children; their wishes made a reality at a time when they need it most.[/p][p]Because a child’s life shouldn’t be about illness, hospitals and diagnosis – it should be about wonder, joy and hope.[/p][p]We’ve seen the effects a wish can have on a seriously ill child: from creating incredible memories, building confidence and bringing happiness, to providing respite from the daily struggles that come with a critical illness. [/p][p]We know what wishes can give, and this is the driving force behind why we continue to do what we do.[/p]
