We recognise the privileged position we have in the community in which we work, and it is important to us as an organisation, to give back to this community wherever possible.
That is why each year we ask our people to nominate and vote for a charity that we will all support over the course of a year through various fundraising initiatives – so that together, we can make a difference to the lives of others.
Richard House Children's Hospice - our charity of the year
This year, we are proud to be supporting Richard House Children's Hospice as our charity of the year.
Based in East London, Richard House Children's Hospice provides palliative care to children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions across London.
Opened in 2000, Richard House was London’s first children’s hospice.
It was founded by Anthea Hare, who was inspired by both her experience as a paediatric nurse at Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel, and through helping her parents to look after her severely autistic brother.
Today Richard House support more than 300 families from Newham, Barking, Dagenham, Tower Hamlets, Waltham Forest, Hackney, Redbridge, Haringey, Islington, Ilford, Camden and into South Essex.
Richard House Children’s Hospice takes pride in their values, many of which are shared with Blick Rothenberg – being respectful, valuing openness and integrity and being passionate about achieving excellence. And it is with great pride that we raise money for this invaluable charity.
We have already held a number of fundraising activities this year, from bake sales and dress-down days, to Christmas jumper day and our legendry Charity Shield football match, with many more planned for the year ahead.
