We have been Kia Motors charity of the year since 2017 when we launched the ‘Power of Wheels’ partnership.
The partnership is holistic in nature comprising of staff volunteering, gifts in kind, office fundraising, participation in challenge events such as runs (with Kia’s CEO running London Marathon), cycle rides and swims, together with donations for every new UK car registration.
“The Children’s Trust is a remarkable charity providing essential and life-changing services to young people who have suffered brain damage. As a car company, we are aware that a lot of these injuries result from road accidents and so this partnership is very close to our hearts. It is also a great way for all of our people to feel they are giving something back to young people whose lives have been dramatically altered through no fault of their own.” Paul Philpott, President and Chief executive of Kia Motors (UK) Limited
Shard Financial Media
We have now worked with the Shard Financial Media Group for several years as the beneficiary charity for the Credit Strategy Awards. We have worked in collaboration with their team to provide exceptional auction items and arranged for a young person to speak at the event.
We have a longstanding partnership with Equiniti who have helped fund essential specialist equipment. The partnership has been a fantastic success with staff taking part in marathons, bike rides and abseils. They have organised cake sales, wine tasting evenings, auctions and raffles and volunteered at numerous events.
Taj International Hotels
Quilon Restaurant and Bombay Brasserie have chosen us as the beneficiary of their “£1 on the bill" for the past three years. They raised an incredible £2,600 last year, and have also supported us with an auction prize of dinner for two in their Michelin Star restaurant.
Savoo Search, Save and Raise are one of our new fundraising partners. Simply use Savoo Search as your default search engine (the same way as you would your current search engine) and Savoo will donate 1p for every search. If you’re looking to do some online shopping and want to get a great deal, Savoo has thousands of voucher codes and deals that will help you save money & they will donate to The Children's Trust at the same time.
Scrap Car Comparison
Scrap Car Comparison will be supporting The Children’s Trust this summer. If you’ve got an old, unwanted or damaged vehicle you’re looking to get rid of, Scrap Car Comparison makes the process hassle-free by guaranteeing competitive quotes for your car, regardless of the condition. Customers can then choose to donate some, or all of the profits to The Children’s Trust, funding life-changing services for children with brain injuries. Since March 2016, Scrap Car Comparison has raised over £200,000 for over 30 charities. It’s a great way to get rid of the vehicle you no longer need while donating to charity at the same time!

The Grape Variety
We’re thrilled to be partnered with a local company, The Grape Variety. Thomas launched The Grape Variety in Spring 2018 with the idea that a wine shop could cater to the needs of not just the expert-tippler, but a wine-newbie too and everyone in between. He wanted to create a warm, relaxed atmosphere for locals to come and unwind at the end of the day with a glass (or three) but also where people could come for informed, friendly advice about what wine to buy to take home. The bar was a huge success, and two years later they opened up a second wine shop in Walton-on-the-hill. They are going to be supporting The Children’s Trust events and run some fundraising plans of their own. Find out more here.
