<Charity of the Year>

Nominate us as a charity for a short period of time to fundraise exclusively for. This is often done via a pitch process and a staff vote. The money is normally raised via employee fundraising within the organisation often through bake sales, quizzes, challenge events. 

We were honoured to be named Lockton’s Charity of the Year for 2022-2023. In this time, Lockton’s Charitable Trust has donated over £260,000.



Highlights of our partnership

Lockton took part in many fundraising efforts raising lots of money for Rays of Sunshine.

Another £30,000 was raised with other fundraising events including poker nights, golf days, bake sales and others.

Lockton staff volunteered to help wrap Christmas presents, pack teddy bears for National Teddy Bear Day and help out at our Wish Community events.

The support, communication, and encouragement we got from the charity enabled us to have an impact far larger than we initially targeted.
