London, 24 June – Brainwave teams up with corporate supporters Emprise to raise money for disabled children
How often do we live for years in a particular area and yet know next to nothing about it? On Tuesday 21st June, national children’s charity Brainwave provided a unique opportunity for Londoners and its visitors to delve into London’s eventful past and raise money for this amazing charity at the same time, by launching a Charity Treasure Hunt taking place in the heart of London.
The event proved hugely successful, with circa 200 people attending, raising over £6000 of valuable funds for Brainwave.
All the money raised will go directly to children’s charity Brainwave, which develops bespoke home-based therapy and exercise programmes for children with developmental delay and other disabilities, and has Centres in the South East, South West and North West of the UK.
Main sponsors of this event were Emprise and the Man Group. Emprise, after working with the charity in 2010 decided to enter the Brainwave Guardian Scheme in 2011. As part of the Guardian Scheme, Emprise have sponsored Chase, a little boy with cerebral palsy, to receive a year’s home based therapy. Tony Hampson, Executive Director, Operations at Emprise comments, “We see our partnership with Brainwave as a great way to raise awareness of the important work Brainwave are doing for families like Chase’s all across the country. We enjoyed working with Brainwave over 2010 and having seen what a phenomenal contribution Brainwave makes to the families involved, we are only too pleased to show our support and make our own contribution in 2011 through our sponsorship of Chase.”
