With lots of big charity organisations out there it’s quite often that the smaller ones aren’t as well heard of.
The Charlotte Hartey Foundation is one of these small charities. The Foundation was set up in memory of Karl & Helen’s daughter and Tristan’s sister Charlotte after she passed away following a telephone misdiagnosis.
The Foundation helps to fund structured, purposeful projects and ventures in and around Cheshire and Shropshire, giving local youths the opportunity to reach their full potential – and it’s safe to say we’ve already helped make a big difference to many people’s lives.
We’ve supported many projects to date, donating over £25,000 to:
• Team Funding
• Sports Equipment and kits
• School Projects
• Guides and Scouts
• Youth Clubs
Here we share a couple of our more recent donation stories to offer a taste of the types of ventures we support:
Volunteering in Tanzania
Oswestry Dental Nurse, Beth Moran was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to join a team of dental professionals in Tanzania, providing emergency dental care to a very remote and rural region.
We donated £500 to get Beth to Tanzania for this once in a life time trip. Here Beth shares a snippet from her trip; “I am so grateful for my wonderful experience in Tanzania. I have learnt a lot about a beautiful country its culture and welcoming inhabitants. The trip was a great success as the team I joined managed to treat over a thousand patients and most importantly we trained seven clinical officers. These clinical officers are now equipped with the right tools and knowledge to be able to diagnose dental disease, treat and extract teeth safely and correctly refer patients who need more specialist care.”
A company based at West Cheshire College have set up ‘Project High’ – a brand new touring show educating year 5 and 6 students in Chester and North Wales about the realism of leaving primary school and taking the next step to high school where they will spend the next 7 years of education.
With the show being offered to children for free and the promise of a high school survival guide – the project was looking for some funding to help make sure they were able to deliver everything. The Foundation have sponsored them £400 towards their target. We’re eagerly awaiting to hear about the success of the show.
Aside from donating money, we are fortunate enough to have a number of people who want to raise money for our charity too. In return for our help funding their football kits and equipment for their youth clubs we’ve had local kids organising charity football matches and fundraising events, plus we’ve recently been selected as the chosen charity for a Client Race Day in Chester.
