At Champions Speakers, we believe in giving back to the community. We take our corporate social responsibility very seriously and actively raise funds for numerous local charitable organisations. Our principle charity is Rainbows, a dedicated children’s hospice in the East Midlands that supports children with life-limiting and life-threatening diseases and their families.
Since 1994, when Rainbows opened its doors, the charity has brought care and happiness to countless children and their families. Rainbows is the East Midlands’ only hospice for children and young people and the incredible staff help relieve symptoms, improve life quality, support families through bereavements and care for the children until the end.
Champions Speakers, as part of Champions (UK) plc, are proud to help Rainbows in every manner, and have raised over £1 million overall, including £300,000 in 2014. Several of our speakers are patrons of the hospice and we regularly utilise our personalities at a range of charitable events in support of Rainbows.
Other organisations that we have supported include Giving Africa, LOROS, Great Ormond Street, The Lord’s Taverners, Brainwave, PCA Benevolent Fund, Cure Leukaemia and Birmingham Children’s Hospital.
We have also donated new equipment to the local Costock Primary School and regularly offer work experience placements and apprenticeships to young people.
