A major milestone has been achieved for the charity this month with the help of 4Com, the Dorset based telecommunications supplier to UK SMEs. Charities across Dorset were invited to apply to receive a guaranteed £15,000 via the 4Com Foundation, the division of 4Com specifically set up to encourage charitable activity within the company. We are delighted that 4Com have announced the Amelia-Grace Rainbow Fund as the charity beneficiary of their upcoming Welsh 3 Peaks Challenge. 4Com will be raising the £15,000 by taking on Snowdon, Cadair Idris and Pen Y Fan in under 15 hours, with every pound raised being matched by 4Com themselves.
The campaign saw over 20 charities apply which meant the first stage was to create a shortlist. Dean Cartledge, Director and Head of the 4Com Foundation, explained the process the team went through, “It was incredibly tough to get the list down to 5. Every charity was thoroughly deserving and doing inspirational work. The 5 that made the shortlist had most clearly demonstrated how the funds would be used to impact a great number of people within our county.”
Its not long now until 5 teams and support vehicle set off for the 3000 mile round trip to Amelia in Italy raising funds for the charity. Nearly a year in the making this event has been organised by a team of volunteers who have done a fantastic job so far. Now we need your help. Each team has self funded or raised corporate sponsorship of at least £1000 to cover the cost of their trip but now they need to raise sponsorship from friends, family and our kind supporters in order to raise money for local children in need of our help. You can help in a number of ways.
