RAYS OF SUNSHINE ANNOUNCED AS A CHARITY TIMES AWARDS FINALIST FOR PARTNERSHIP WITH THE FRAGRANCE SHOP
Rays of Sunshine is shortlisted for the Corporate National Partnership of the Year with a Retailer for its partnership with The Fragrance Shop.
Jane Sharpe, CEO of Rays of Sunshine, said:
“We’re absolutely delighted that our partnership with The Fragrance Shop has been shortlisted for a Charity Times Award. Since 2012 The Fragrance Shop has donated 5p from every transaction, and encouraged its customers to match the amount, which has led to hundreds of seriously ill children to have their greatest wishes granted. It’s fantastic that this successful partnership has been recognised and we’re keeping our fingers crossed that we win!”
Sanjay Vadera, CEO of The Fragrance Shop, added:
“Our partnership with Rays of Sunshine has been an important part of The Fragrance Shop’s history, and we’re honoured to be recognised for this by the Charity Times Awards.
Through our contribution, and the additional funds raised by our customers via Pennies, we have raised over £500,000 for this amazing charity – granting over 422 wishes for seriously ill children.
We are proud of our ongoing commitment to supporting our favourite children’s charities and are delighted for our work to be recognised in this way”
