As the festive spirit fills the air, it's important to recognise the profound challenges this time of year represents for so many children and young people. Incredible charities like KidsOut play a vital role in changing this for the better.
Each year, over 20,000 children flee domestic abuse to seek sanctuary in refuge. These children have very little, often having endured life-altering physical, emotional, and even sexual abuse. With the support of their partners, including Rotary International, KidsOut aims to reintroduce the joy and happiness of childhood to those who have had it taken away.
Through their highly effective initiatives, including KidsOut Days, Giving Trees, National Rotary Days, Toy Box services and more, KidsOut can provide disadvantaged children across the UK with the fun and happiness that they deserve.
At Trinnovo Group, we've been organising a range of festive fundraising opportunities in support of KidsOut – this year marked our inaugural end-of-year networking event, which we took as an opportunity to raise awareness for the incredible work the KidsOut team does all year round. We also hosted a prize raffle and a company-wide Christmas Jumper day, where we raised over £109!
Thank you to all our wonderful clients, colleagues, and community members who donated; KidsOut’s mission resonates deeply with us and we’re grateful for your generosity.
'KidsOut would like to thank all the staff and their contributors at Trinnovo Group for their incredible contribution of toys for children spending their Christmas in refuge this year. Your hard work and generosity has been both moving and outstanding.
The children we support are some of the most vulnerable children in society and without your kindness many of them would not receive a present this year.
When children arrive in refuge, usually with no more than the clothes they are wearing, they are often traumatised and will have either witnessed or experienced physical, emotional, and even sexual abuse. Your amazing efforts will bring smiles to many of these children.' – Sara Williams, CEO of KidsOut
