Supporting new charities for 2014

This year the First Choice team decided to support two different but equally deserving organisations, the first being St Giles Hospice. Which is a midlands based charity that offers specialist care for patients with cancer and other life threatening illnesses. The organisation also supports the patients’ family members and support network of helpers. Care is provided at a number of the hospices facilities in Sutton Coldfield, Walsall and Whittington, as well as in the patients’ own home.

Over the past 30 years St Giles has offered a sanctuary of rest for those who need it and has grown to become one of the best known and respected charities in the region. The charity now has over 400 members of staff, over 1,000 volunteers, 30 charity shops and provides free care irrespective of personal circumstances.

With this in mind the decision made by First Choice to support St Giles throughout 2014 was an easy one to make. The second chosen organisation for 2014 is The Hospitality Industry Benevolent Organisation, also known to many people as Hospitality Action. The charity offers support to those who work and have worked within the hospitality industry and find themselves in crisis.

Hospitality Action offers financial assistance and grants for retired members of the organisation or those who have fallen on hard times and require help with food, equipment and central heating. They also provide support for people suffering from illness, domestic violence, bereavement and poverty.

At First Choice we strongly believe in supporting those who are less fortunate than ourselves and choosing to fundraise for Hospitality Action all through 2014 was a decision easily made. What’s more, by supporting Hospitality Action First Choice can support people from the industry that supports us as a successful company.

To keep up to date with all of our events and activities, find us on Facebook or Twitter where we post regular updates, pictures and stories of our progress. We hope that 2014 will prove to be a fantastic year for charitable fundraising and also hope that our partners and customers will support us in our efforts.
