Our Supported Charities for 2019
In order to make sure the work we do has a real difference, we get our staff to vote on our charities for the year, both local and national.
By concentrating our support on a few specific causes we feel that our fundraising efforts can have a greater impact on the communities our customers and staff live and work in. If you would like either your cause or one of your own supported causes to be considered, please email email@example.com with your details.
We also have our international charity, IT Schools Africa, which we have continued to support for the past 10 years.
There is currently no cure for dementia, and it is the biggest killer in the UK, with someone being diagnosed every three minutes. Alzheimer’s Society is the only charity in the UK that campaigns for change, funds research to find a cure and offers care and support to people living with alzheimers and dementia today.
By researching, fundraising and campaigning for Alzheimer’s Society, we can all contribute to achieving a world without dementia.
IT Schools Africa
Stone have been supporting IT Schools Africa, a charitable organisation who are transforming lives through access to e-Learning, for almost 10 years now.
By recycling your redundant IT hardware through us you too are supporting this exceptionally deserving charity which is making a real difference for underprivileged children in Africa. To reflect this we can issue Certificates of Appreciation and you can display these with pride as recognition of the role you’ve played in the project.
Katharine House Hospice
Katharine House Hospice provides a range of services that offers holistic care and support for people with advanced life-limited conditions and their families across mid-Staffordshire. Katharine House is committed to providing a welcoming, warm and safe environment, where hope is kept alive and laughter is often heard.
All services are offered free of charge, with Katharine House relying purely on the kindness and generosity of the local community to help generate over 75% of the funds needed to continue providing care.
Poppy Fields Appeal
Poppy Fields Appeal began after Brian’s eldest daughter, Poppy, was diagnosed with a brain tumour at just 14 months old in 2004, and has been fighting it ever since.
All of the funds raised through Poppy Fields, is donated to Brain Tumour Research at Birmingham Children’s Hospital, where Poppy has received her much needed care.
Poppy Fields take part in a number of events to raise donations, and Stone are happy to support the fantastic work made by the Poppy Fields team.
