We are committed to exercising a comprehensive corporate social responsibility policy to make a difference to our local communities, and give something back where possible. Here are just a few of the ways we have tried and are still trying to help.
We have chosen to support Lilac’s Little Legs, a charity that struck a chord with us all here at Claremont. We have been raising money via pub quizzes, early payday finishes, Christmas jumper days, where nearly all of our fundraising efforts have centred around this charity. We have raised awareness for Lilac, and her story has touched so many of our hearts here at Claremont. Her battle for independence and to walk again is not only courageous but a reminder to us all that nothing is impossible if you set your mind to it.
At eight-months-old, Lilac was diagnosed with spastic diplegia cerebral palsy and told that she might never walk. Lilac and her family now need help to get her little legs working, so that she can fulfil her dream to walk independently. An operation known as SDR could change Lilac’s life for the better, but it is not available on the NHS and 18 months of intensive rehabilitation is needed for it to be a success.
Lilac’s family wishes to raise funds, to adapt and modify their garden to create a safe environment. It will be a space where Lilac can participate in daily, post-operative physiotherapy. The family also hopes to get a therapy dog to support Lilac through her ongoing rehabilitation.
For every £1 that our team raises to support Lilac’s ambitious goals, the business will match it through various fundraising events, held by our staff and their families and friends. This year target is £3,000, meaning a minimum of £6,000 in total, will be raised for Lilac.
Lilac’s Little Legs is a charity that is local to us. We believe in the power of giving back and supporting the grassroots organisations which comprise such an important part of our communities. https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/claremontconsulting-lilac
