£10,000 For Life’s Great Causes – The Winning Charities

Story posted: 13.02.20

On 31st January, Ashtons For Life’s Great Causes online poll came to a close. After an exciting month watching the votes soar, the total number received reached over 11,500. The event was once again an overwhelming success, demonstrating sheer dedication and commitment made by those who care so much about supporting charities in the local community and generating vital recognition for some really great causes. 

The winning charities are:

1. £5000 to Teens Unite Fighting Cancer

“We are so grateful for the huge amount of support we received during the vote. We officially became a teenager last week so it was the perfect birthday present. The £5000 will directly fund our two Mother’s Day Afternoon Teas which will mean our teens and their mums can enjoy quality time together, having fun and reconnecting. Every opportunity we can provide for the young people we support to get together is invaluable in helping them out of isolation and rebuilding the confidence that cancer has stripped from them. Whatever stage they are at, from diagnosis, through treatment and beyond, our mission is to bring them together to have fun, make new friends and support them to live life beyond their diagnosis. Thank you to everyone who voted and to Ashtons for this fantastic opportunity.”

2. £3000 to Rennie Grove Hospice Care

“Rennie Grove Hospice Care were delighted to be chosen to take part in Ashtons’ For Life Great Causes campaign again this year. For the month of January, it created a buzz around the whole office and it enabled us to engage with supporters across all areas of the charity, particularly in the last week when the campaign ramped up. We were thrilled to win second place and the £3,000 received will help us continue to provide care to local adults and children with life-limiting illnesses and to support their families. Thank you Ashtons and all that voted for us.”

3. £2000 to JOCA

“To even be considered as a possible recipient of the money raised by Astons staff was incredible for us at JOCA. To still be in the running up to the last minute was mind blowing to think we had that much support out there, but to be one of the finalists beating some of the better known local charities is incredible. We are so so grateful for the votes and the people who supported JOCA. The money will have a massive impact in allowing us to fully support those who turn to JOCA for help and guidance and will allow us to continue to provide free counselling.”

In addition, as a special thank you, everyone who generated further awareness by displaying a dedicated board was allowed to enter a charity into a separate £500 prize draw. Ashtons are delighted to announce Orphans Know More – www.orphansknowmore.com will receive the donation.Nominated by Mrs. Terry Elphick in Harpenden.

John Peachey from the charity commented, “This donation of £500 from Ashtons will enable Orphans Know More to sponsor five children, adopted by a Ugandan family, to attend primary school for one year. We support African families adopting orphans and have a personal relationship with the families we work with. Orphans Know More was established in 2005 when we began supporting Ugandan families working alongside those infected and affected by HIV/ AIDS. We sponsor the education of all the children within our families, equipping each one to develop their unique potential.”
