Carers Gloucestershire announce a fundraising partnership

Staff at the Cheltenham-based company have selected to support Carers Gloucestershire as its annual charity and over the coming year the team will embark on a number of different events from cake sales to quiz nights to one big event, to raise as much money as they can.

Dave Giles, Managing Director of Abbey Business Group says: “This is a great partnership for us to embark on. Working with Carers Gloucestershire, who are a long-established charity in the local area means we will be able to see where our efforts go first hand. There are some exciting events planned over the next year or so, even something that might be a bit painful – at my suggestion. I look forward to seeing what the team can achieve.”

Tim Poole, CEO of Carers Gloucestershire adds: “We are over the moon to be chosen as Abbey’s charity of the year and are looking forward to creating a great partnership with this leading company. As well as the opportunities for fundraising, linking with a prestigious Cheltenham employer will raise the profile of issues faced by unpaid carers and highlight the support that is available from Carers Gloucestershire.”

Abbey will be calling on the local business community to support their fundraising efforts throughout the year.

Carers Gloucestershire believe that no one should have to face the challenges of caring alone. We offer a wide range of services, practical and emotional support, which help carers not only in their caring role but also, and importantly, to their live their own lives in a way that suits them, helping them to access opportunities for learning, leisure and employment; opportunities that others may take for granted.

Abbey Business Group has been established in Cheltenham since 1989 and has evolved to becoming a leading supplier in all the areas it operates in – dedicated to helping create the very best in working environments.
