Cavendish Venues donates a record £4,082 to charities Christmas 2020.
We are very proud to announce that we are donating a record £4,082 to charity this year. This builds on our donation of £3,958 last year, and the 53 individual donations we made throughout the year. Every year we make a significant donation to charity. We are proud of our place within our community and fundamentally believe in giving something back. We believe our CSR initiative goes further and deeper than any other Conference or Meeting Venue in London. Initiatives this year include giving a hot meal for every delegate who passes through our doors, CLICK HERE for details. For the past 15 years we have sponsored the Society of Women Artists Sculpture Award. We support a number of local initiatives; be it art groups who showcase their works on our walls, local community groups who use our spaces an no cost, and an under 16’s football team in East London. On the environmental front we continue to lead from the front, no conference centres do more than us. We are building on our zero to land fill commitment in many ways, this year we will be planting a tree for every enquiry received. Adding to the 600 + trees already planted.
We are donating to the following charities:
The Florence Nightingale Foundation: Since 1929, the foundation has been providing scholarships to the best nurses and midwives in the UK. These are the people on the cutting edge of the health service, often unheard but truly the vital cog which makes it all work.
Sign Health: At the moment deaf people have significantly worse health profiles than the rest of the UK population, primarily because of the in balances in terms of access. Sign health are working to redress this.
Global Health Film: An organisation working to harness the unique role film is increasing playing in society (witness the growth of YouTube / Netflix etc) to stimulate debate and drive change around issues relating to inequalities in health.
Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund: Pancreatic Cancer has the lowest survival rates of all cancers, just 5% survive beyond 5 years, a figure which has hardly moved for 40 years. This area is chronically underfunded, the fantastic charity is working to redress this.
Reuben’s Retreat: Offer a range of support services for children who have life limiting or life-threatening illness. Services include short breaks, activity and therapy days, counselling etc.
Rugby Portobello: Operating for over 130 yeas this charity offers support for children and families in one of the most deprived areas of London. Services include Homework clubs, Youth Clubs etc.
Animals Asia: Working to end the barbaric bile trade in Asia. This trade sees over 10,000 bears kept in bile farms in China and almost 1000 in Vietnam. To date this wonderful charity has rescued over 600 bears, caring for them in award winning sanctuaries in China and Vietnam. The charity is also campaigning to end the trade in dogs and cats for food.
