Charity of the Year

We are Supporting The Buddy Bag Foundation

Workspace Technology may not be the largest corporate in the UK, but their 26-employee strong workforce are passionate about raising much needed funds for a local charity each year. Chosen via a staff vote, 2019 will see the Buddy Bag Foundation be the recipient of their hard work knowing that every penny raised through the various planned fundraising activities will go into supplying Buddy Bags.

A shocking fact: 48,000 children require emergency accommodation in the UK each year. These children often must leave home quickly without the chance to collect basic items, often arriving in emergency accommodation with just the clothes that they are wearing.

The Buddy Bag Foundation provide Buddy Bags containing all the essential items a child needs. They include toiletries, pyjamas, socks and underwear. They also include comfort items such as a book, a photo frame and a teddy bear. A Buddy Bag is something a child can call their own, no matter where they go.

Workspace Technology have set a target to raise £2500 in 2019 which will provide 100 bags, bringing an element of comfort to 100 children. With every penny that is raised being ploughed into the cost of a bag, the team are passionate about beating the target and helping as many children as possible.
