Celebrating Community Support: A New Charity Partnership

Partnership with the CAUSE Foundation

We are thrilled to announce that The CAUSE Foundation is our new ‘Charity of the Year’ for 2024! This decision reflects our ongoing commitment to supporting families in Teesside.

This announcement comes as we wrap up a wonderful year of collaboration with Victoria’s Wish, our 2023 charity partner. Our journey with Victoria’s Wish has been nothing short of inspiring. We’ve seen firsthand how our contributions have made a real difference, particularly with our final sponsorship: a static campervan in the serene Lake District. This campervan offers a peaceful retreat for families of young people facing life-threatening illnesses, providing a much-needed break from hospital visits and treatments.

Ian Lawrence, the founder of Victoria’s Wish, shared his heartfelt thanks: “We are incredibly thankful to the Applebridge Family. The caravan will provide a sanctuary where families can find comfort and peace during the most challenging times of their lives. It’s gestures like these that truly make a difference.”

Supporting our community is at the heart of what we do. Donny Hughes, our founder and CEO, reflected on this initiative: “We believe in making a tangible difference in the lives of those around us. Partnering with Victoria’s Wish has allowed us to extend that support to families facing unimaginable challenges.”

Looking ahead, we are eager to work with The CAUSE Foundation. This partnership will not only involve our financial support but also activities throughout the year, including a major fundraising event at the Wynyard Estate Golf Course.

Pat McBride, co-founder of The CAUSE Foundation, expressed their gratitude: “We are absolutely delighted and profoundly grateful to be chosen as the Applebridge Charity of the Year. It will make a huge difference to our charity and gives us confidence to continue supporting the families in need across Teesside.”

Adrianna Hughes, our Charity of the Year Trustee, echoed this enthusiasm: “The CAUSE Foundation embodies the essence of community spirit and dedication that we at Applebridge Family aim to support. Their commitment to aiding families and individuals in need across Teesside is truly inspiring, and we are proud to play a part in their incredible journey.”

As we start this new partnership, we look forward to making a positive impact together. Thank you for your continued support in helping us make a difference in our community.
