A MUCH-LOVED city cause has been selected by a market-leading technology provider to be its chosen charity for 2017.
Open GI will raise funds for New Hope following a vote by employees from a list of deserving local causes.
Staff will be encouraged to volunteer, increase awareness and, most importantly, raise vital cash.
Established in 2010 by the inspirational Jean Wilson, New Hope exist to provide specialist respite care to children with disabilities and complex health care needs.
“We are all thrilled to have been chosen as the charity partner of Open GI, especially as they are a local company and conveniently located to us,” Jean said.
“It will make a huge difference to our children and we very much look forward to working together.”
Open GI raised more than £31,000 for St Richard’s Hospice in 2016 and CEO Chris Guillaume said the company was looking forward to the challenge.
“New Hope work tirelessly with families who have children with disabilities by running a school holiday club and Saturday club throughout the year,” he said.
