Thank you to all our marvellous friends
When your company partners with Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity, you will be making a real difference to the lives of the 12,000 seriously ill children that we support throughout the UK each year.
As our corporate partner, you will become part of our Marvellous family - bringing your support, staff enthusiasm or industry expertise to add real value to the lives of the Marvellous children and families that we support. You will make a vital contribution to our mission to provide every seriously ill child with a specialist nurse.
Funding from our Marvellous partners is already making a real different to families every day, in many ways, but we still need your support. If your business or organisation would like to talk about partnering with us, we would love to chat. Please contact Sarah Sharkey, firstname.lastname@example.org
We would especially like to thank the following companies and charitable trusts for their incredibly generous support:
The Ambassador Theatre Group (ATG) is an extraordinary success story. Founded in 1992, ATG is now the world's number one live-theatre company with close to 50 venues in Britain, the United States and Australia. ATG has already raised over £80,000 for Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity following a fundraising campaign during the 2016/17 pantomime season. ATG have committed their ongoing support for a further 2 years and will once again be holding bucket collections after every pantomime performance.
Leading children's footwear brand, Chipmunks (part of Courtaulds Footwear Ltd.), has joined forces with Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity to support our vital work with seriously ill children throughout the UK. The partnership will see Chipmunks introduce a brand-new capsule collection, which will initially include the launch of an exclusive pair of wellingtons and slippers featuring the charity's mascot, Marvin the Marvellous Crocodile.
Ten percent of all proceeds from these products will be donated to the charity. The lovable toothy character will also appear on all of Chipmunks' shoe boxes, further endorsing the charity partnership.
The Roald Dahl rose, also called (Ausowlish), has been developed by David Austin Roses to celebrate the world's number one storyteller, Roald Dahl. Marking his one hundredth birthday, this peach-coloured bloom also raises money to help seriously ill children in the UK, as £2.50 from every rose sold will be donated to us.
We're delighted to have been chosen as one of Edgewell Personal Care's two charity partners. The company has been based in Buckinghamshire since 1973 and supporting charities within their local community is a priority. Edgewell owns familiar household brands such as Wilkinson Sword, Hawaiian Tropic, Banana Boat and Wet Ones, as well as a substantial Private Label Shaving business.
2016 saw the launch of our partnership with Explore Learning, providers of maths and English tuition at centres across the UK. Centre staff and children have been enthusiastically joining in with our Dahlicious Dress Up Day and various other fundraising and challenge events. The Explore Learning team has lots of exciting plans for supporting the families under the care of our Roald Dahl nurses and we are looking forward to supporting them in any way we can.
Roald Dahl was passionate about children reading for pleasure, that's why he was Chairman of Readathon until 1990. In addition to encouraging children to read, Readathon, the UK's national sponsored reading event, raises money for charity and is a long-standing supporter. Millions of pounds have been raised for seriously ill children in the UK since the first event in 1984.
We would also like to thank the following partners:
We are very pleased to be working with Bax and Bay who generously donate a portion of each sale from their clothing range to support our work.
