The businesses themselves and the staff regularly support charities and fundraisers in our local communities. Whether it be staff time, resources, or donations we will always try our best to help where we can.
Travel House are dedicated to fundraising for their local communities by way of coffee mornings and cake sales as well as attending various events.
Morgans Hotel regularly donates vouchers for luxury overnight stays to various fundraising raffles and auctions. We have donated to hundreds of worthy causes and charities over recent years and are proud of the thousands of pounds raised in the process.
Each year our staff and the businesses come together to buy Christmas presents for the MR X appeal. We are proud of the donations handed over each year.
2021 is the first year the businesses will come together and support, fundraise and promote a Swansea based charity under the Swansea.com brand. Whilst we will continue to support the many charity and fundraising requests, our main focus will be our featured charity.
Our featured charity is Faith in Families. Faith in Families was established in 1999 and have three family centres in Swansea. These centres are based in disadvantaged areas of the city and are now well established to assist and support the local parents and children with their basic needs.
Faith in Families are currently working on two main projects. The Brighter Futures project aims to give children the best opportunities to be the best they can be alongside the Inspiring Futures project that help the parents of the children be the best they can be for themselves and their children.
When we met with Cherrie Bija the charity director we were blown away by the passion and dedication of the small teams that work in the centres and the work that they carry out. It was extremely humbling to have the pleasure to meet some of the team and children. We were given data on the number of families living below the poverty line and the complex support needs of families within our communities.
We are fully committed to the staff and families at Faith in Families and aim to support the charity by way of fundraising, volunteering our staff time and promoting the charity in and around the city of Swansea. To find out more information visit www.faithinfamilies.wales
