Carlisle’s Tax Rebate Services have donated more than £28,000 to the NSPCC since 2012 to help children in Cumbria.
The five-figure milestone follows seven years of donations from company, giving thousands of pounds to the charity each year.
The incredible £28,247 total is significant for both the Tax Rebate Service and the charity, as it closely follows the 30th anniversary of the Carlisle Service Centre.
Paul Donohoe, Managing Director of Tax Rebate Services, has said “The work that the NSPCC carries out is vital and we are privileged to be able to support such an important charity. We are fully committed to making future donations to help change young people’s lives.”
Sandra Jones, Community Fundraising Manager for the NSPCC has said “We are thrilled that the Tax Rebate Service has been supporting us for so long, and has now managed to raise almost £30,000. We are so thankful for their amazing donation which will help us to continue our work in helping vulnerable children in Cumbria.”
The money goes towards the Carlisle service centre, which develops therapeutic programmes to help young people and their families. The service currently offers:
Protect & Respect: To support young people who are at risk of being sexually exploited.
Turn the Page: Intervention for young people to help them control aggressive behaviour.
Letting the Future In: To encourage young people who have been sexually abused to plan a positive future.
The money raised in Carlisle stays in Carlisle, and goes towards supporting local children and families. With donations making 90% of the NSPCC’s funding, it is vital that we have the support of local businesses like the Tax Rebate Service.
